A FedEx employee is accused of stealing high-priced phones out of packages bound for customers in the Greenville area.
Daniel Sacks is charged with six counts of larceny by an employee and one count of obtaining property by false pretense.
Pitt County deputies say the 22-year-old did barcoding at the FedEx facility on Northland Drive. They say Sacks would remove iPhones, an iPad and several other high dollar phones out of incoming packages. He is accused of then putting the packaging back into the boxes and shipping those empty boxes to customers.
The Sheriff's Office says they were tipped off by FedEx after customers started complaining of the empty boxes. Deputies say they are still investigating whether there might be more cases of similar theft.
