WAREHAM, MA (WBZ-AM)--A Taunton postal worker is accused of stealing money from a woman's purse at a convenience store and is caught in the act on camera, while wearing his uniform. 

Saturday morning, a customer at the Cumberland Farms in Wareham reported over $60 stolen from a purse she had put down on the front counter while she went to the back of the store for a minute. A review of the security footage revealed a customer in a United States Postal Uniform had reached into her purse and taken the money. 

According to Wareham police, that civil servant was Thomas Medeiros , who was later arrested while on his postal route. The money was recovered and Medeiros was bailed pending an appearance in Wareham District Court on Monday morning. He is being charged with larceny from a person.
