Somebody at the Imagine Penn Hills Post Office had helped themselves to a five finger discount. They had a burglar, a thief, a regular sticky-fingers, in their midst. However you said it, the situation was the same and money was missing!“Uh oh,” declared Lily, the 2nd grade manager of the Postal Agency, her face a mask of concern.
“330 Micros are missing from our money box. I counted a minute ago and we had $400. This is not good.”
“That’s big money,” agreed Dejuan, a 1st grade delivery clerk, as he looked around on the floor for any misplaced bills. Shaking his head, he announced, “I don’t see nothing.”
“Anything,” corrected Lily, who by then had begun to manage the situation.
Suspicious was a big word. “What does that mean?” chimed Nyier, a kindergartner, his eyes wide.
“Like they were up to no good,” answered Lilly. She scanned the faces of her employees, looking for answers.
“Come with me,” she reached out her hand. “I’ll need you to give me a description of this citizen so we can find him.”
After a brief deliberation, the jury found Shane guilty and the judge sentenced him to pay back 165 Micros, half of what he had taken.
