Ex-postal worker admits taking bribes to steal credit cards
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A former postal worker has admitted she accepted cash to steal envelopes containing credit cards.
Kyanne Costley pleaded guilty Thursday to accepting bribes. The 24-year-old Newark resident faces up to 15 years in prison when she’s sentenced May 29.
Federal prosecutors say Costley received $100 for each stolen credit card, eventually accepting $1,750 overall.
Costley, who worked as a mail carrier in Elizabeth, took the envelopes while delivering mail between September 2017 and February 2018.
