Chester postal worker pleads guilty in $75,000 check-theft scheme

A postal worker faces up to 35 years in prison after she admitted her role in a conspiracy to steal checks worth more than $75,000 from the Chester Post Office.

Nicole Georges, 30, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Newark federal court to charges of theft of mail and conspiracy to commit bank fraud, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.

Two other defendants in the case, Raheem Haynes-Moore, 25, and Daquan Pruitt, 31 previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud.

According to the prosecutors, Georges stole checks from the post office in Chester where she worked. Georges and her conspirators deposited the checks, worth more than $75,000, into various bank accounts, and withdrew the money, often that same day before the checks were reported stolen, Carpenito said.
