Hundreds of Queenstown residents whose mail has been mysteriously going missing during the past two years will finally have it delivered after police found thousands of mailed items at the home of a NZ Post staff member on Friday.

A 32-year-old Queenstown woman, employed by NZ Post to deliver mail in the Fernhill area, was arrested and charged with theft on Friday as a result of an ongoing investigation that was assisted by NZ Post.

Detective Grant Miller said the thefts had been occurring over a two-year period.

''Police have recovered a substantial amount of mail, including parcels and letters from the woman's Frankton Road address,'' he said.

The investigation is continuing and police hope to be able to return the stolen items as soon as possible.

The woman will appear in Queenstown District Court today and further charges are likely to follow, he said.

Police would like any residents of the Fernhill area who believe they are missing mail to contact NZ Post customer service on 0800 501 501.
