PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A United States Postal Service carrier has been found guilty of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from packages she never delivered.

Jamie Deann Dent was arrested in connection with the crimes in December 2018. She was found guilty on Thursday of 11 counts of mail theft and one count of aggravated identity theft.

The thefts happened from Dec. 13, 2016 to Sept. 20, 2018, according to court documents.

According to a search warrant previously obtained by FOX 12, Dent stole $37,000 in cash bank deposits from the Troutdale Famous Footwear. The post office was contracted for the delivery of that money, but court documents show it never made it to the bank, prompting an internal investigation by the Office of Inspector General.

Investigators said they then found more deposits of over $3,000 from a Naturalizer store that also never made it to its destined bank, despite being scanned as received by Dent.

USPS inspectors also said they found 14 missing packages that contained cash in a community mailbox locker that Dent was responsible for.

According to court documents, Dent suffers from a traumatic brain injury, and at the time of her arrest, was taking Suboxone to combat an addiction to opiate pain medication.

Dent is due in court for sentencing on March 4.

why mention she had a TBI and was taking drugs, she obviously knew what she was doing, hiding the money and trying to get away with it. She also was still employed and working.


More add ick crimes that will be given a free pass in Oregon as part of the pity party, from Oregon’s Liberal Socialist Lack Of Justice System, enabling these add Icks ensures ever more civilized citizens will be victimized! Add Icks are extremely dangerous criminals who should be permanently removed from civilized society or at least until they prove they will become productive civilized citizens and Never go back to drugs! Enabling is absolutely the worst possible decision The Portland Metro Area can make, stop enabling those who choose drugs and get back to actually protecting Law Abiding, Tax Paying, Civilized Citizens!!
