A postal worker was hit and killed Tuesday morning after an accident at the Brooklyn Center Post Office, according to police. Authorities said officers were called around 7:25 a.m. to the post office located at 6845 Lee Ave. in Brooklyn Center.
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.
Federal prosecutors are accusing a 43-year-old postal worker from Jordan in the theft of about $4,000 in cash and gift cards from mail she delivered.
It could turn out to be a big price to pay for allegedly stealing nearly $800 worth of gift cards from the mail, but that’s just what one Forest Lake postal worker is facing after being accused of the crime.
