I wish she was my Post Person. I'm pissed off with junk mail A POSTWOMAN pocketed extra cash for delivering more than 6,000 junk mail letters â€“ but just stashed them in her home. Jennifer Boddy, 34, had worked for the Royal Mail for just two months before she started to hoard letters she was supposed to deliver at homes across Hartlepool. For some 19 months, she was given extra cash to deliver 6,113 items of junk mail â€“ but they never reached their destination. Suspicious post bosses launched a probe and called in police. Town magistrates heard that police went to the postie's home, in Tennyson Avenue, Hartlepool, last August and found 2,908 undelivered packages. And a further 3,205 packages were found during a second visit by Royal Mail investigators last December. As well as junk mail, they also discovered 28 addressed envelopes. Yesterday, Boddy was given a 12-month community order with supervision after admitting intentionally delaying postal packets between February 21, 2007, and September 19, 2008, at a previous hearing. She was also ordered to pay Â£100 costs and Â£103 compensation â€“ to pay back extra money she received for making the deliveries. At a previous hearing, Royal Mail prosecutor Paul Heron said: "She accepted she had been due to deliver the postal packages and had failed to do so because of various problems at home. "She said she did intend to deliver them and had received extra money for delivering these items." Mitigating, Phillip Mitchell, said: "The vast amount of this post is almost all promotional material. "When I asked her the usual question of why she did it, she was at a loss to say why." Boddy, who was a postwoman for 21 months before she was caught, no longer works at the service. All the items of recovered mail were returned to the sorting office and eventually posted.
