A U.S. Postal Service employee who ran a Kansas town’s post office and stole gift cards from the mail has avoided prison time and a fine.
Stacy A. Vasko was sentenced Tuesday to three years of probation, 40 hours of community service and $200 in restitution. The sentence comes after she pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Topeka to a misdemeanor count of obstructing mail.
Vasko had initially been charged with two counts of mail theft by a postal employee. At the time she was indicted last summer, she was 31 years old and living in Salina.
Vasko had been a postal support employee in the Brookville post office since 2017, according to court documents. She was the only employee to work in the small facility, which was open just four hours a day.
