Delivery driver found guilty after stealing 89 parcels in New Zealand - 9News

A Wellington courier driver failed to deliver 89 parcels, instead taking them home for himself.

Between June 6 and November 10 last year, an independent contractor for New Zealand Couriers, Akash Arora, stole parcels containing perfume, clothing and electronics, among other things.

The total value of the items was NZ$8098 ($7432.57).

On Monday, Arora pleaded guilty in Wellington District Court to a charge of theft by a person in a special relationship.

In November, NZ Couriers National Operations Manager John Charles said the company became aware of the situation and the matter was referred to police, who subsequently searched Arora's home.

Stolen freight valued at NZ$7700 ($7067.28) was recovered and a reparation order was sought for NZ$398 ($365.30), for the value of two icebreaker jackets which had been worn by Arora and couldn't be returned.

Mr Charles said Arora's contract was terminated as soon as the company became aware of the issue.

"Independent contractors engaged by NZ Couriers are vetted. Unfortunately in this case an individual made the choice to steal. We expect all contractors to treat our customers' parcels with the utmost respect and take immediate action when we are alerted to any issues," he said.

"All claims received from parcel senders were actioned appropriately, following our clear process for any issues where our contractors have fallen short."

In explanation for the theft, Arora told police he had been going through some difficult times both personally and with his employment situation.

He is expected to appear in Wellington District Court on June 23 for sentencing.
