USPS Worker Charged with Misappropriating $55,000 in Money Orders and Cash
This time, it's Latrobe, Pa. post office employee Jessica L. Croyle., who has been indicted by a federal grand jury and charged with misappropriation of postal funds. Croyle allegedly converted more than $55,000 in postal money orders and cash for personal use, and faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine if found guilty, according to The Pennsylvania Record.
It's another in a string of incidents involving USPS employees. Last week, a series of reports by the Postal Service inspector general revealed that postal workers used government-issued, taxpayer-funded travel cards for gambling, bowling and other personal expenses.
Before that, a USPS delivery driver allegedly hurled a package containing a hard drive against a homeowner's garage door. A video of the incident, captured by a home surveillance camera, quickly went viral, prompting a flood of negativity toward the Postal Service on Twitter and other social media sites.
