A North Dakota relief Postmaster has admitted stealing over a thousand dollars from the Tappen, ND Post Office where she worked. In a plea agreement, Samanthe F. Mittleider admitted stealing money orders and using them to obtain cash. She also admitted that she had delayed reporting money order sales by up to 13 days “to allow her more time to use the money and to try to later cover the sales”. In addition, Mittleider admitted that she had lied on her USPS job application, failing to disclose that she had been fired from a previous job for theft.
Total financial losses for the USPS came to $1,152.76. Mittleider would be required to repay those funds if the judge approves the plea agreement.
