A Twin Cities woman stole more than $74,000 while working for the U.S. Postal Service starting about two months after she filed for bankruptcy, according to court records.
Jaclynn M. Horstmann, 31, of Brooklyn Center, was charged Monday in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis with theft of government property in connection with stealing $74,349.80.
Horstmann was charged by information, meaning that she intends to plead guilty to the felony count. A message was left Wednesday with her attorney seeking a response to the allegations.
The complaint said the money was stolen from November 2018 to August 2019, when Horstmann “was no longer employed with the Postal Service,” said Greg Godfrey, spokesman for the Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General.
