Former Williamson County mail carrier sentenced for stealing rebate checks

(WSIL) — A former Williamson County mail carrier was sentenced after stealing rebate checks.

Brittany Freeman, 27, of Johnston City, Illinois was sentenced this week to three years’ probation and a $100 fine and was ordered to pay $704.10 in restitution to her victims. Freeman had earlier pled guilty to theft of mail by a postal service employee.

In February and March, 2020, while working as a mail carrier, Freeman stole over $700 worth of rebate checks sent by Menard’s to customers along her routes.

Surveillance cameras at a nearby Menard’s store captured Freeman using the rebate checks for herself soon after stealing them.
