From first class to no class: A postal worker is accused of going through first class parcels at the distribution center in Allen Park.

It happened on New Year's Eve.

The USPS Office of the Inspector General said a co-worker spotted David Moen going through a bin.

According to court records, Moen allegedly took "lingerie" from one of the packages.He later admitted to taking the unmentionables home to his wife as gifts.

So how did she receive his bizarre romantic gesture? She didn't.

Turns out she didn't like the "hot" lingerie. So Moen threw it away. Moen has admitted to taking items out of the mail three different times. He could face up to five years in prison.

The following statement was released from the USPS:

“The vast majority of U.S. Postal Service employees are hard-working public servants dedicated to moving mail to its proper destination and would never consider engaging in any form of wrong doing or criminal behavior.  The special agents in the U.S. Postal Service, Office of Inspector General   work in close partnership with local, state and federal prosecutors to hold accountable those employees who violate the sanctity of the mail to which they are entrusted.  This type of alleged criminal behavior within the Postal Service is not tolerated and when a postal employee betrays the public trust of the American people, our agency vigorously investigates these matters as we did in this instance. “
