Des Moines post office scam leads to postmaster’s firing

Des Moines Postmaster Cheryl Love was fired early this year after she was accused of failing to investigate a long-running scam that cost the U.S. Postal Service more than $100,000.

State unemployment records indicate Love, who was named Des Moines’ 35th postmaster in 2013, was fired from the federal agency in February.

She was accused of failing to investigate concerns that a local employee of the Postal Service was embezzling money through a scheme that involved the use of money orders issued at a south-side post office between October 2014 and March 2016.
