DALY CITY, Calif., Jan. 3 (UPI) -- California police said they are trying to find the owner of a 1938 telegram found in the back seat of a mail carrier accused of stealing credit and gift cards.

Daly City police said Romeo Natan, 38, was busted on charges of stealing credit and gift cards from mail he was supposed to be delivering to San Carlos homes and investigating detectives discovered a telegram from Christmas Day 1938 among the thousands of letters allegedly stolen by Natan, the San Mateo County (Calif.) Times reported Thursday.

Senior Detective Joe Bocci said the telegram must have been dropped into the mail prior to the holidays.

"I think someone was passing down some family history," he said. "It means something to somebody."

The telegram is from a couple named Minnie and Fred and addressed to a woman named Emma Gonzales in San Francisco. The text wishes Gonzalez a happy holiday and informs her the couple arrived safe in Reno.

Natan and two alleged accomplices are facing numerous felony charges.
