A Minnesota woman is accused of stealing more than $74,000 from the United States Postal Service (USPS) while she worked there.
Jaclynn Horstmann, 31, was charged via information Monday in U.S. District Court in Minnesota with one count of theft of government property.
According to court documents, between Nov. 29, 2018, and Aug. 14, 2019, when she was employed by USPS, Horstmann stole $74,349.80 from the postal service.
Details on how exactly she stole the money from the USPS or what she used the money for were not outlined in the information document. Horstmann did file for bankruptcy in 2018, court records show.
The Star Tribune says Horstmann, of Brooklyn Center, had worked as a clerk in the Burnsville post office for three years during the alleged theft. She has since been fired.
