Postal Worker Accused of Mail Theft

Associated Press - August 20, 2015 2:28 pm

A southwest Kansas postal worker faces federal charges accusing her of stealing mail.

A federal grand jury in Wichita indicted 30-year-old Maria S. Alvidrez of Plains, this week on two counts of theft of mail. Alvidrez worked at a post office in the town of Kismet.

According to the indictment, Alvidrez stole gift cards from mail addressed to a Denver, Colorado, man and Kansas City, Missouri, resident in April and May.

The U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General investigated the case.

Online court records don’t list a lawyer for Alvidrez, who faces up to five years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 on each count if she’s convicted.
