Hubbard Police officers arrested a rural postal carrier for mail theft after finding more than 26 tubs of stolen mail inside her home.
Dolli Tiffany-Brown, 61, of Hubbard, is accused of stealing first-class mail, store gift cards, packages, bulk mail and advertising circulars from the Hubbard Post Office and customers on her rural delivery route.
Hubbard Police Sgt. Bill Gill said his department began an investigation after a local resident reported that two days after she had mailed two Wal-Mart gift cards to her brother in South Carolina from the Hubbard Post Office Dec. 15, the cards were exchanged for merchandise at a Woodburn Wal-Mart store.
â€œWe received a criminal complaint in early January in regard to the missing mail, and the initial indication was that the crime had been committed in Hubbard, so we began an investigation,â€ Gill said. â€œShortly after our investigation got underway, we were notified by the postal inspection office that they were investigating the case, too.â€
