If you live in Iqaluit and wonder why you haven’t been getting certain mail that you have been expecting, you will be pleased to learn about the result of a joint investigation between the RCMP “V” Division’s federal operations section and Canadian postal inspectors.

The Nunavut RCMP said today that a 42-year-old man had been arrested and charged with theft from mail.

“The investigation commenced after postal inspectors received several reports of non-receipt of mail within the Iqaluit community,” the RCMP said in the Dec. 6 news release.

Police arrested Junior Marcelin, 42, on Monday, Dec. 3, for theft of mail. He was later released, the news release said.

Marcelin has been charged with a single count of theft from mail, contrary to section 356 (1) (a) of the Criminal Code. He will appear on Feb. 25 at the Nunavut Court of Justice in Iqaluit.
