URBANA — A federal grand jury has indicted two more employees of the U.S. Postal Service from Champaign County for fraud related to COVID-19 relief funds.

On Wednesday, Tasheena White, 32, of the 2400 block of Goodfield Drive, and Uniqua Whitaker, 26, of the 1200 block of Clifford Drive, Urbana, were each charged with wire fraud in connection with Paycheck Protection Program loans.

The indictments allege that the women submitted false loan applications and supporting documents to acquire the federal funds in the spring of 2021. Each was awarded about $20,000, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District.
