December 13, 1979
A senior, who worked for the Vassar Post Office in Main, was arrested on the charge of stealing mail after a two-month investigation by postal inspectors, as tampering with U.S. mail is a federal offense. The student was "discovered rifling letters by United States postal inspectors after several students had complained of 'difficulties with their mail" and letters had been found bound by a rubber band at the bottom of a trashcan.
The student alleged mistreatment and deprivation of due process by the four federal officers after his arrest.
