In the shadows of the glittering towers of Wall Street there lurk the little people, and from them comes the story of one Samuel Sanders, a Citigroup mailroom employee who was arrested yesterday for stealing . . . office supplies. Sanders thought he was being super-clever when he ordered 1,000 extra Canon toner cartridges on Citigroup’s account and resold them online, but he was no match for his eagle-eyed co-workers, who caught him stuffing them into company Fed Ex boxes. The most tragic part? The cartridges were valued at $50,000, but Sanders only got $14,500 online, making this what must be the least profitable white-collar crime ever.
