thanks for the graduation money, grandma!

A postal worker rooted through years of mail looking for cash, credit cards and checks before burning and burying piles of envelopes in her yard with the help of family members, authorities said.
Investigators recovered two dozen bins of letters, paychecks and credit card bills inside and outside the home, some dating to 2003.
...four others face charges in an operation that investigators say pilfered everything from insurance cards to students' graduation money.
So this lady stole US Mail looking for cash and goodies mailed to others since 2003, huh? Given many teens' reluctance to acknowledge receiving checks from relatives, I'm not certain anybody would have noticed the discrepancy right away.
Well, maybe the teens would have.
