A letter carrier has pleaded not guilty to stealing mail he was supposed to deliver to people in Coventry. The Providence Journal reported that US Magistrate Judge Lincoln Almond on Tuesday ordered Matthew Golatto, 28, of Providence, remain free on an unsecured bond. Golatto is charged with one count each of stealing and delaying mail. He was first arrested in July. Authorities said they found mail in Golatto’s personal vehicle, including 55 opened greeting card envelopes, some of whose contents had been removed. Postal agents allegedly recovered 36 gift cards and an opened package containing medicine mailed from the US Department of Veterans Affairs to a Coventry resident.
