Former Pa. postal worker admits to stealing cash from mail intended for Penn State students

WILLIAMSPORT — A former postal worker in State College has admitted over an eight-month period in 2018 to opening mail intended for Penn State students, taking cash and discarding the rest.

It is unknown how much money Jessica Stover, 27, of Mill Hall, took between January and August 2018 because it was in cash, Assistant U.S. Attorney Geoffrey W. MacArthur said.

Stover pleaded guilty Wednesday in U.S. Middle District Court to a charge of theft of mail by a postal employee. She was released on personal recognizance pending sentencing.

Stover, while sorting mail at the post office, took letters and greeting cards addressed to students, MacArthur said in describing the government’s evidence.
