Texas UPS driver accused of stolen bling in shoes

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A delivery driver in San Antonio is accused of stealing about $30,000 worth of jewelry by stuffing the bling into his shoes.

A police report says 23-year-old Joshua Rodriguez, who worked for UPS, was charged with theft of more than $20,000.

The report says a July 22 end-of-shift security check of Rodriguez turned up items intended for delivery to a jewelry store. Police say Rodriguez had been suspected of taking expensive items, including gold chains and rings.

Rodriguez was freed Thursday on $10,000 bond. A jail clerk, who declined to give her name Friday, told The Associated Press that no information was listed for an attorney for Rodriguez.

UPS Inc., the world's largest shipping carrier, did not immediately return a message Friday to AP.
