    No matter what this kid was going to get caught. Post office has at least $5,000 inside at any given time. They do money orders along with regular daily $ transactions. But seriously I live in this town,it is so small that the home he was at was a stones throw away from the crime. What an idiot! Post office is federal government so of course dogs were brought in rite away. I don’t feel bad for the kid. I feel bad for the woman who was working! She is such a nice woman who goes out of her way to be friendly to the people who use that post office.
