Ca: Postal worker arrested after passport applications stolen

From the Canadian Press:

Authorities say a Canada Post employee was arrested after 75 filled-out passport applications collected by Human Resources Minister Diane Finley’s office were allegedly stolen.

A 28-year-old man from the Gatineau, Que., area was arrested Nov. 6 and released, Const. Isabelle Poirier said Thursday.

Police recovered passport applications from Ontario and some stolen mail, said Poirier, who added Gatineau police are awaiting approval from the prosecutor’s office before laying a theft charge.

The applications had been filled out at passport clinics held in Dunnville and Simcoe, Ont., by Finley’s constituency office during the summer.
