BRADENTON, FL — A former employee of the Bradenton Post Office is in hot water after Manatee County deputies say they unraveled his alleged scheme to cash in on his job illegally. The arrest of Deshawn Keels, 24, on forgery and grand theft charges was announced Friday.
According to the sheriff’s office, the case against Keels resulted from three victims who reported delivering money orders to a mail drop box outside the 5910 Post Blvd. post office in Bradenton. The money orders totaled $1,823 combined, a Friday email from the sheriff’s office said.
