Sudan Postal Worker Jailed for Mail Theft

A Sudan postal worker is in the Lamb County Jail, for allegedly stealing mail from postal customers. Sudan is located on U.S. 84, about 50 miles northwest of Lubbock.

Sudan Police made the arrest just after 7am Wednesday, in cooperation with the Postal Inspector General. According to Sudan Police Chief, Robert Walters, they took action following a two week investigation.

The woman, who has reportedly confessed to the crime, worked as a mail sorter. She is accused of taking mail that appeared to contain money or gift cards. Officers have now recovered at least four of those gift cards.

The suspect is charged with theft, between $500 and $1,500. Due to the fact that she was employed as a public servant and had access to mail, the charge is a state jail felony. Because of the heavy caseload in Federal Court and the relatively low monetary amount involved, this case will be tried in County Court.

Walters tells NewsChannel 11 that the suspect's name will not be released at this time; also that she is cooperating with this ongoing investigation.

If you believe you were a victim of this apparent scheme, contact Chief Robert Walters at (806) 227-2112.
