Former postal and county worker accused of stealing mail, credit card info
Sharika Prejean is accused of stealing mail while she was working at a post office and also while she was working at the Harris County Clerk’s Office.
HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — A woman accused of stealing mail and credit card information went before a judge on Thursday.
Sharika Prejean, 30, is charged with fraudulent use of identifying information of an elderly person and credit/debit card abuse — both felonies. She’s being held on $30,000 bonds for each charge. If she makes bond, she would be ordered to not have contact with the victims, wear a GPS monitor and adhere to a curfew.
According to prosecutors, Prejean was working in a post office and handling mail when investigators put a radio transmitter in a piece of mail. They said they caught her opening that piece of mail.
She’s facing 2 to 10 years in prison if she’s found guilty on both charges.
