Wow, what a letter to a newspaper, admitting newspaper theft

Theft of home delivery newspapers was a serious cost to our business back when we were doing that 15 years ago. It was so bad that several times we followed delivery people to catch those stealing. The worse situation was in a retirement village where a long-standing feud was found to be the motivator.

I know of situations where people stealing considered it an essentially victimless crime, thinking that the publisher ultimately paid. Little did they realise.
