Manic Monday--There's Always Work At The Post Office!

So, dear readers, the question has arisen: what is the toughest and shrewdest crime fighting agency in America? The FBI? DEA? ATF? U.N.C.L.E.?

No, no, no and no, you silly geese...

Ha!! Bet you didn't see that coming!!

In today's case...

So, wait...registered letters are just laying around in an open box where any goomba can reach in and grab them?!?

Fortunately, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service is on the job!!

Wait...not even a single lead?

Howz about...he's stealing figure out where they're being cashed and work from that end?

Howz about, I dunno, checking the postmark on the bleeding letter?

Howz's a registered letter, right? Those are supposed to be tracked, right? Even in 1948, you must know what postal branches they go through, right??

Howz check for fingerprints on the envelopes? He's not wearing gloves...

Nope, they're right. Not a single lead. But that won't stymie the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, nosirree. See, our unnamed agent has a plan!

Wait...this is a "small" Midwestern town, but it has six post offices?

And so...

An agent who picked the silliest method possible when there must have been abundant clues! Thank heavens for the United States Postal Inspection Service!!

From Real Life Comics #44 (1948)

That really is inspirational. I suppose there aren't any mailman heroes because secret identity jobs must be mundane.

The guy is just opening envelopes and then resealing them with a giant pot of glue -- all from **inside a Post Office** -- and no one can catch the criminal genius!
