MARION COUNTY, Fla. —
A Marion County postal worker is facing federal charges after investigators said she admitted to opening mail and stealing money from envelopes.
Channel 9’s Kenneth Craig learned that authorities were alerted after someone saw mail piling up at Christine Rovelto’s home.
Federal investigators said the mail carrier was hoarding people’s mail at her home for nearly a year instead of delivering it.
They said mail was piling up on her outside porch so high that strangers could see it from the distant roadway. That’s what prompted one of them to contact authorities.
