Mail Theft Suspect Makes Court Appearance

Monday, November 08, 2004 at 13:41



A 19-year-old woman from La Ronge accused of stealing mail from the local post office made a brief court appearance in the community today.


Miranda Michelle Pappenfus is charged with one count of mail theft and was scheduled to enter a plea today.


However, that’s been adjourned until November 22nd.


Pappenfus was employed by a contractor hired to do work inside the Canada Post building in La Ronge.


Police say they recovered a number of pilfered items in a search of a local home earlier this fall — including cheques, CDs and movies.


The RCMP says Canada Post employees in La Ronge were not involved in the thefts.
