Last month, Arvada, CO, City Carrier Gina Garrett was making a delivery to a King Soopers grocery store when she heard a commotion and a shout. Store security personnel were chasing two suspected shoplifters through the front doors. The duo escaped on foot and Garrett continued on her route. She spotted them a few minutes later in the neighborhood and called Arvada police. She discreetly followed them, speaking to dispatch personnel until police arrived to arrest the two. “We are the eyes and ears for our community,” said Garrett. “I was happy to help.”

Store Manager Terri Capra-Wathier wrote a letter to the Arvada Postmaster.

“Gina definitely went above and beyond in aiding in the apprehension of these shoplifters,” said Capra-Wathier. “I just wanted you to be aware of what an awesome employee she is.”
