A lawn care guy went to put mail back in a mailbox. He took out 39 checks worth $171,000
A West Palm Beach lawn care guy stole 39 checks worth $171,599 from one Lantana mailbox.
The next number that’ll concern 34-year-old Marchello Wilbon: the number of years he’ll get in federal prison when he’s sentenced Dec. 13 for mail theft after he pleaded guilty. The maximum is five years and a $250,000 fine.
According to Wilbon’s admission of facts, around 9 in the morning on Monday, July 15, he was working in a yard in the South Atlantic Drive area of Lantana. A resident on that street, “H.B.,” put the aforementioned 39 checks in the mailbox for pickup by the mailman.

One of Wilbon’s coworkers found an open envelope with a check from H.B.’s address. Wilbon said he went to put the check back in the box, but the pile of mail called to another part of Wilbon. He took the 39 checks back to his truck and hid in a blue bag.
