    Investigators are looking for people who may have been missing a gift card over the past 90 days.

    Gift cards sent in the mail were too much temptation for one postal carrier in Santee, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies.

    Allen Joseph Pitman, 54, was arrested Wednesday February 4 in connection with the theft of gift cards in mail.

    Pitman is accused of stealing mail and gift cards over the course of four years, according to deputies.

    Pitman worked out of the Santee Post Office and had W-2 wage and tax statements for several residents as well as social security information in his possession when he was arrested, deputies say.

    Now, investigators are looking for people who may have been missing a gift card over the past 90 days. Anyone who believes they are missing a card and has the original receipt is asked to contact Detective Drake of the Santee Sheriff’s Station at (619) 956-4053.
