FedEx Employee Accused of Stealing $10K in Cash From Packages

It has been alleged that a recently fired FedEx worker stuffed $10,000 in cash, along with an Apple watch and AirPods, into his pockets at the company’s Memphis shipping center.

Kadarius Pirtle (20) has been accused of theft, with a total amount ranging from $10,000 to $60,000.

On May 1st, at around 2:15 AM, a FedEx security agent alerted the Memphis Police Department to the plant located on Democrat Road. Pirtle was seen opening boxes and putting lots of money into his pockets, according to the security guard who reported the incident to the police.

According to an affidavit filed by the police, the security officer said that Pirtle had ten thousand dollars in $100 denominations and the Apple products when he was told to empty his pockets.

According to records from the Detention Center, Pirtle was jailed on May 1st and let go on his own recognizance on the same day.

FedEx has decided to terminate Pirtle’s job. In a statement, FedEx said the security and safety of their customers’ deliveries are the primary concern, and they will cooperate fully with investigators.

According to FedEx, it is highly recommended that you contact them immediately if you suspect your package was stolen from your front door.

Keep your shipment receipts and tracking numbers secure. You should also have an invoice or assessment handy to demonstrate the worth of the missing item or items. For U.S. shipments, there is a 60-day deadline from the date of shipping, and for overseas shipments, there is a 21-calendar-day window. Specify the items you’re looking for along with their brand name, size, and any other relevant information.

As precautions for future delivery, consider installing a security camera or arranging for products to be delivered to a different address.

Although the precise timeframe could differ, an inquiry into a lost or stolen item by FedEx usually takes 1-2 weeks. However, this timeframe might be extended if the parcel cannot be found promptly. To stay informed about the investigation’s progress, it is prudent to proactively contact FedEx for updates.
