A Massachusetts postal worker accused of stealing more than 3,000 Netflix DVDs has entered a plea deal and will spend about a year in jail, according to the Smoking Gun.

Myles Weathers, who worked at a mail processing and distribution center in Springfield, Massachusetts, was nabbed last year for the video heist after Netflix officials became suspicious about the frequency with which DVDs were being pinched. Weathers, 49, was subsequently arrested after surveillance footage showed him removing DVDs from Netflix envelopes and placing the discs into his backpack. 

Thanks to Kevin, Dan, Jeff, Sam, Nick, and everyone else for sending this in.
