TOANO, Va. — A contract U.S. Postal Service employee is accused of stealing boxes of personal checks to commit bank fraud.
The crime allegedly happened last year from around March to September, and the checks were destined for residential mailboxes in Toano.
According to a federal indictment, a man named Abraham Redding filled out checks for various amounts of money and deposited them into the bank accounts of others involved in the scheme so he could withdraw the money for himself.
According to the indictment, Redding is accused of attempting to steal $30,000 from unsuspecting victims on his delivery route.
