USPS worker accused of stealing more than 6,000 greeting cards filled with cash, checks

WAUWATOSA — United States Postal Service inspectors went to great lengths to catch a postal worker accused of taking cash, gift cards and checks from a Wauwatosa residents’ mail.

Prosecutors say the worker took more than 6,000 letters from residents in two Wauwatosa ZIP codes. It was a special blue envelope that helped catch her in the act.

When residents in the neighborhood realized their greeting cards with cash inside weren’t getting delivered, the United States Postal Inspection Service began a deep dive into the mail.
