Missouri Postal Contract Employee Indicted for Stealing Mail

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that an employee who worked under a contract with the U.S. Postal Service was indicted by a federal grand jury today for stealing mail.

Kristen L. McIntyre, 37, of Trenton, Mo., was charged in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo.

According to today’s indictment, McIntyre was an employee for a trucking company under contract with the U.S. Postal Service. McIntyre worked as a highway contract route driver to transport mail to and from post offices in Trenton, Spickard, Princeton and Mercer, Mo., to the Chillicothe, Mo., post office.

McIntyre allegedly stole mail – including money and gift cards – between Aug. 18 and Sept. 15, 2016.

Dickinson cautioned that the charge contained in this indictment is simply an accusation, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charge must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rudolph R. Rhodes, IV. It was investigated by the U.S. Postal Service – Office of Inspector General.
