Kane County prosecutors allege that an Aurora woman lied to police earlier this year and made up a story about an armed robbery at a U.S. Post Office in LaFox.
Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon has charged 47-year-old Zelpha Moore of Sans Souci Dr. with felonies for Disorderly conduct and Obstructing Justice.
As WSPY previously reported on May 2nd, the Kane County Sheriff’s Office was told that a male wearing all black with a black zip up sweatshirt and ski mask and gray gloves entered the LaFox Post Office and confronted a female postal employee demanding money. The post office is on LaFox Rd. in LaFox, east of Elburn.
The sheriff’s office said they were told the robber brandished a semi-automatic handgun and that the female postal employee tackled the subject before he was able to get any money. The sheriff’s office said it was reported that the robber then fled on foot and that deputies and K-9 units did not locate the alleged robber.
Prosecutors allege Moore falsely made that report to a Kane County Sheriff’s deputy. According to a LinkedIn profile, Moore was employed with the U.S. Postal Service.
