LLANDUDNO, Wales, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- Prosecutors in Llandudno, Wales, say a postal worker admitted tossing thousands of pieces of mail in the woods because he "had lost interest in his job."

Adam Stuart, 22, admitted in court to two counts of delaying mail and stealing 67 postal packets after authorities said he dumped thousands of parcels near his home and opened some letters to steal club card vouchers for the Tesco grocery store chain and other items, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

"He stated he had lost interest in his job, having not been paid for the

work he had done, so he couldn't be bothered," prosecutor Dafydd Roberts said.

Defense attorney Richard Williams asked for sentencing to be delayed until reports could be submitted concerning Stuart being diagnosed with dyspraxia, which he said affects his client's coordination and thinking skills.

Stuart, who was released on unconditional bail, is due back in court Nov. 5.
