Video: Detroit postal worker faces workers comp fraud charges

DETROIT – A former U.S. Postal Worker in Detroit is expected to face charges of double-dipping, after federal agents found her illegally working at a new job.

Caprice Hughes worked for the postal service for six years. During that time she filed a number of worker’s compensation claims and was granted a leave from her job last year, when a right arm injury left her unable to lift anything heavier than five pounds.

She was paid nearly $30,000 a year in disability checks, with a requirement not to work at other jobs, as well as filing and signing legal paperwork in the process.

But federal agents found her working at a hair and nail salon in Oak Park.
