TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – A United States postal employee from the Toledo area accused of stealing mail is now facing federal charges.
Investigators say it happened over a three-month time frame. Prosecutors are charging Megan Huffman, with one count of theft of mail by a postal employee. At this time, officials have not identified where the thefts happened.
Whether it goes into the blue box, going into your home’s mailbox for delivery or arriving at your home, the expectation is that your mail is safe. A recent federal court affidavit outlines what can potentially happen.
Huffman was not indicted on these charges, she was charged in federal court via something called an information. That’s when a defendant waives their right to a grand jury proceeding and goes right into a prosecution.
The document says Huffman stole, removed mail or something intended to be conveyed by mail between October and December of last year.
