Postal Worker Pleads Guilty To Theft And Assault

Dec 21, 2012

A former U.S. Postal Service worker in Columbus has pleaded guilty to charges of stealing cash and gift cards from mail at a processing center and assaulting officers.

Prosecutors say Postal Service agents saw 37-year-old Terrence McLean open envelopes and remove the contents while sorting mail in June and put it in his sock and down his pants. Agents say McLean punched and bit them when they arrested him. Investigators recovered 71 first-class letters, 20 gift cards and 341 dollars cash when searching McLean.
