LaFox postal employee charged with falsely reporting robbery

ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A preliminary hearing for a U.S. Postal Service employee at the LaFox post office, accused of falsely reporting an armed robbery, has been scheduled for Feb. 27, court records show.

Zelpha K. Moore, 47, of the 2200 block of Sans Souci Drive, Aurora, was charged Oct. 4 with two felonies, falsely reporting a crime when she knew it had not been committed and knowingly furnishing false information to a county deputy, according to the charging documents.

Moore had claimed on May 2, 2019, that she tackled and disarmed a would-be armed robber at the U.S. Post Office in the 1N block of LaFox Road, LaFox, according to a news release from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Moore had claimed that a man was brandishing a semi-automatic handgun, but she tackled and disarmed him before he could get any money, according to a news release from the Kane County Sheriff’s office that day.
