Tuscaloosa postal clerk indicted on federal embezzlement charges after $24K goes missing

A Tuscaloosa postal clerk was indicted by a federal grand jury on embezzlement charges after she allegedly pocketed nearly $24,000 by voiding customer transactions, according to court records.

April Tucker, who worked as a sales and service distribution associate for the post office at 22nd Avenue in Tuscaloosa, was indicted on one count of embezzlement of government property.

According to the indictment, which was unsealed Wednesday, Tucker had access to the post office’s cash registers and would “void out certain items or the entire sale and then take all or part of the money provided for payment by the customer.”

An audit conducted between January 2018 and November 2019 found the Tuscaloosa post office was short nearly $24,000.
Tucker worked at the post office from June 2014 until November 2019, when she was placed on emergency leave, according to the indictment.
