TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) — Two postal workers are facing federal charges over unrelated allegations they stole mail destined for two small towns in northeast Kansas.
One of them, Stacy A. Vasko, is accused of swiping mailed gift cards in Brookville in February and April of this year, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. The 31-year-old Salina woman was indicted on two counts of theft by a postal worker.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says the other postal worker, 28-year-old Timothy J. Pacha, of Herkimer, faces a single count each of stealing mail and of destroying or detaining mail in Marysville between January and April 2019.
The charges came following an investigation by the U.S. Postal Service’s Officer of the Inspector General.
According to U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister, each count carries a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
