Police arrest ex-postal worker in Cobb County after finding stolen mail in car

May 8, 2024


Stolen mail was found inside a stolen car. Cobb County police say the woman with the car used to work for the U.S. Postal Service.

Police officers spotted a stolen vehicle in a parking lot on Spring Road. A little while later, they saw a woman identified as 39-year-old Ebony Williams get in the vehicle.

“It was a rental car. The rental car company had reported the car as stolen because the person who rented the car did not return the vehicle on purpose,” said Cobb County Police Sgt. Eric Smith.

Officers looked inside and found letters scattered throughout the vehicle addressed to various people and businesses. None were addressed to Williams. However, she did have a connection to the letters.

According to court records, Williams “admitted to being a former employee of the U.S. Postal Service where her occupation was a mail carrier.”

“During that time, it is believed that she took mail that she was supposed to deliver and some of that included checks that she retained for her own purposes,” said Sgt. Smith.
