— A letter carrier accused of stealing mail is back on the job delivering to some of same people he is accused of stealing from.

Harnett County deputies arrested Garland Avery back in April and lost his job, but recently won his position back.

Many residents along his route are uneasy about the move.

Avery faces 91 counts of larceny. Postal officials refuse to discuss the case.
