Theft probe took too long: video game firm
A Montreal video game dealer is going after Canada Post, saying it was too slow to investigate a rash of thefts from its sorting station in St. Henri.
Game Access rents video games by mail and called the post office when its returns started disappearing in 2010.
It says Canada Post took too long to set up a sting operation with specially marked return envelopes and by the time a night shift employee was arrested, nearly 1500 games had been pilfered.
Game Access is seeking close to 200-thousand dollars in compensation.
The 52-year old woman arrested was sentenced to one year, to be served in the community.
