(WSVN) – She was the friendly mail carrier that everyone in the neighborhood loved, but behind her smile was a secret that could send her to federal prison. The Nightteam’s Brian Entin investigates.
Brian Entin: “Ms. Coleman, I’m Brian Entin from 7News. Why were you stealing people’s mail?”
Coleen Coleman sure did look surprised to see us.
Brian Entin: “Do you feel bad? Those folks trusted you.”
For years, Coleman was the mail carrier in the Carriage Pointe Estates neighborhood in Coral Springs.
On her public Facebook page, she posted a picture in uniform.
Mike McEntee, neighbor: “I trusted her. I thought she was a nice lady, but she, she just … she was a con.”
Last year, neighbors noticed some of their mail was missing.
