A former employee of a U.S. Post Office branch in Slidell pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing checkbooks, gift cards, cash and checks out of people’s mail during a four-month period beginning in September 2016, federal prosecutors in New Orleans said.
Bria Davis, 25, faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine during a sentencing hearing June 27 in front of U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier.
Davis was working at the retail window counter, handling postal sales, P.O. box delivery and customer service when she fell under scrutiny from internal investigators, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. When they confronted her about the misconduct, which she admitted, she allegedly had 10 pieces of stolen mail in her personal car.
