Florida Keys postal carrier accused of stealing mail, faces up to 20 years in prison
A Florida Keys postal carrier could serve up to 20 years in federal prison for stealing people’s mail, according to a grand jury indictment filed this week.
The grand jury indicted Courtney Jones on four counts of mail theft by a Postal Service employee. Each count carries a maximum prison sentence of five years.
The U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, the agency that investigated the case, would not provide any details about the investigation or Jones’ work history.
According to the indictment, Jones stole her first letter or package from a resident on Dec. 31. She did it again on Jan. 13, Jan. 14 and Feb. 6.
