We have been very carefully hinting for the last two days that the postman-delivery robbery was done in an easy way to make it look like a normal robbery!
And indeed yesterday morning the 44-year-old postal delivery man confessed to the men of Patras Security that he staged the robbery, with two… non-existent perpetrators, in order to reap the amount of 20,000 euros he had in his bag, on his way to Mamousia of Aegialia and other villages of the area. The amount was intended to pay pensions to farmers in the surrounding communities.
It is a fact that from the first moment, both the Police Director of Achaia, Brigadier Thodoros Tsatsaris, and the Security Commander Giannis Apostolopoulos, had suspected that something was wrong with the… robbery, which is why they brought the postman three times, until confess.
The experienced officers realized that the robbery did not exist, as soon as they confirmed from the security camera footage of the area that there was no motorcycle moving on the road to Mamousia with two people who supposedly immobilized the postman and grabbed his bag with 20,000 euros.
The latter yesterday pointed out the place where he had hidden the money (in the grass, near the scene of the “robbery”), which was actually found by security men. Only 120 euros had been deducted…
The 44-year-old postman, who is a father of two, gave the excuse that he was facing financial problems and felt job insecurity as a contract worker, whose contract was renewed every month.
It should be noted that the security men also had a testimony at their disposal, a pensioner from Mamousia, who stated that the postman had not paid him the previous month’s pension.
A case file was filed against the 44-year-old for false testimony and embezzlement and he is about to be taken to Autoforo.
