LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A federal indictment gives a clue as to why the Post Office in New Home, about 24 miles south of Lubbock, closed down in mid-July.  Ty Page, 28, of New Home was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury in Lubbock on charges related to stolen mail.  Court records also list a co-defendant by the name of Victoria Bridges. 

Sources tell KCBD Newschannel 11 that the Postmaster allowed Page to stay in a back room of the same building that housed the Post Office.  The New Home postal location was contracted, not owned and operated by the USPS.

The indictment says Page had "unlawful" possession of stolen mail including personal checks, and at least one credit card.  Page was already in the Lubbock County Jail at the time of the indictment, having been arrested on state charges of forgery and fraud. 

Federal officials have indicated the Post Office in New Home is not likely to re-open any time soon.
