ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A former U.S. Postal Service employee in Minnesota has pleaded guilty to stealing cash and gift cards from the mail over a 10-month period.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says 36-year-old Christina Steiner of Forest Lake pleaded guilty Monday to one count of theft of mail by a postal employee. She did not enter a plea agreement.

The indictment alleged that Steiner stole between $600 and $800 in cash and gift cards from the mail between December 2009 and Sept. 18 of last year, while she was an employee of the Forest Lake Post Office. She was a substitute postal carrier.

A sentencing date has not been set.
