A German postman who failed to deliver parcels to his punters has coughed to flogging the items on eBay instead.

The 37-year-old postie, who has not been named, was rumbled after a musician - whose clarinet mouthpiece failed to show in the post - stumbled across the item on the e-auction house.

The musician bought the item but informed police as well. When officers raided the postie's flat they discovered scores of missing packages.

According to AP, more than 100 packages - worth around £13,300 - have gone walkies since last summer. ®
