ST. PAUL (WCCO) — A 36-year-old Forest Lake woman has pleaded guilty to stealing from the mail over a 10-month period, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.

In federal court in St. Paul Thursday, Christina M. Steiner was sentenced to three months of home confinement, 200 hours of community service, a letter of apology to the U.S. Postal Service and her other victims, and restitution in the amount stolen.

According to Steiner’s indictment, between December of 2009 and September 18, 2010, Steiner stole between $600 and $800 in cash and gift cards from the mail entrusted to her as an employee of the Forest Lake Post Office.

Steiner resigned from her job on April 26, 2011.

This case was the result of an investigation by the USPS-Office of Inspector General.
