The total number was 26. Of these, 21 were prosecuted and convicted; two were prosecuted and convicted for. theft from the post on charges not affecting food parcels from abroad, but admitted theft of or from such parcels; one has absconded since a summons was obtained against him; and two have been dismissed without prosecution.
