Thank you for the information and your question. What you described would only be a criminal mail theft if the office manager did not have, as their duties, the right to sign for mail and packages on behalf of the Company. If they did routinely sign for theses types of items as a part of their job, then there wouldn't be a separate criminal charge of mail theft. Of course, there is still the embezzlement or theft charges that might be prosecutable. All that said, she could be sued under tort law for the embezzlement and the theft of the letter. That would be in civil court though.
