Postal worker sentenced to 25 months for identity theft, bank fraud

Brown, a Panama City resident, confessed to stealing bank checks and debit cards from both businesses and individuals, a news release from the Department of Justice said.

Elizabeth Shante Brown, a United States postal worker who held jobs in Okaloosa, Walton and Holmes counties, has been sentenced to 25 months in prison for stealing the property of some of her customers.

Brown, a Panama City resident, confessed to stealing bank checks and debit cards from both businesses and individuals, a news release from the Department of Justice said. She used the debit cards to make purchases and cashed the stolen checks.

The thefts occurred between March 1 and May 31 of 2017, the news release said.

“Public servants have an obligation to treat the public with respect and integrity, but this defendant tried to use her position of public trust for personal enrichment without regard to how it would hurt her innocent victims,” U.S. Attorney Larry Keefe said in the release, issued Monday.
