UPS Workers Accused Of Stealing Packages

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) – Police say three workers have been arrested on embezzlement charges in the theft of commercial packages from a United Parcel Services center in south Mississippi.

Gulfport Police Sgt. Joshua Bromen says managers of the UPS Customer Center reported the thefts to investigators.

The suspects – 22-year-old Keith Johnson, 30-year-old Heather Yost and 25-year-old Deshun Hawthorne – were arrested and jailed Tuesday. Bromen says all three of the suspects were UPS line workers.

A judge initially set each of their bonds at $30,000, but Yost’s bond was reduced to $10,000 at her initial court appearance.
