A Queenstown man among those affected by a mountain of
undelivered mail that now tops 20,000 items says he got the
brush-off from New Zealand Post when he complained his post
was not arriving.
Michael Legge, of Fernhill, told Radio New Zealand this
morning he had raised concerns with NZ Post about three weeks
ago after not receiving a power bill and other mail.
"I was quite surprised really because I told them there were
three different things from three different places that
hadn't come and their response was 'well they aren't sending
you the mail'."
"I said so you're telling me that three different places have
decided to stop sending me mail that I need? And she said
NZ Post spokesman Michael Tull told Morning Report this
morning he could not comment on individual cases.
A 32-year-old postie, who lives in Frankton with flatmates,
was arrested on Friday after New Zealand Post had reported
its suspicions over the undelivered mail, which goes back to
November last year.
She will appear at the Queenstown District Court on Monday on
one charge of theft by a person in a special relationship.
A second cache of mail was found in a room at a storage
company in Manse Rd, Arrowtown, yesterday bringing to more
than 20,000 the number of items discovered so far.
