NORFOLK, Va. – We trust our mail carriers to deliver the items headed to our homes. But in Norfolk, one postal worker was recently charged and indicted by a federal grand jury for breaking that trust and stealing packages, boxes and letters.
38-year-old Toya Worlds is facing four charges from the federal government after being accused of theft during her time with the USPS in Norfolk.
The documents obtained by News 3 state Worlds secretly took items out of the mail and hid them in a garage and bedroom at her home in Chesapeake.
The federal indictment said Worlds took letters, postcards, packages, bags and boxes that she was supposed to deliver. The offenses in the documents date from December 2017 to October 2018.
