Ex-postal employee pleads guilty to stealing cash, gift cards from Duluth residents

A former metro-Atlanta postal employee has pleaded guilty to obstruction of the U.S. mail after stealing gift cards and cash from more than 15 letters addressed to residents in Duluth, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.

Markeyta McAllister, 30, of Jefferson, was charged Nov. 23 and pleaded guilty Thursday, U.S. Attorney BJay Pak wrote in a news release.

“While most U.S. Postal Service employees serve Americans with integrity and honesty, McAllister did not,” Pak said.

According to authorities, McAllister, who served as a mail processing clerk, was responsible for sorting parcels deliverable to residents in Duluth from July 2014 to December 2019.
