A FedEx employee in the Bay Area is accused of burglarizing homes while he was supposed to be working, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Police say 57-year-old Kevin Baker ripped off three homes near Palo Alto between May 3 and May 17. Baker is a convicted felon with a bunch of theft-related infractions to his name. He's been charged with first-degree burglary, and a FedEx spokesperson says the company is cooperating with authorities. According to the Mercury News, FedEx security personnel helped police in the apprehension of Baker. (A Royal Canadian Mint worker was accused of smuggling gold coins and nuggets from his job site in his rectum.)
