The Postal Service's Office of the Inspector General is investigating reports that a Newtown postal worker may have been stealing mail for months, according to reports from the Newtown Police Department and the USPS.
Newtown postal worker Kelly McLean was arrested and taken into custody August 15 after USPS agents stopped her on the I-84 Exit 10 on-ramp, acting with the help of local police, according to reports. Police say USPS agents suspected her of stealing mail for "a couple of months."
McLean, 36, was charged with sixth-degree larceny and released on a promise to appear in court August 29. An agent from the USPS's Office of the Inspector General said the investigation is ongoing and no more details could be provided at this time.
Reports are based on information obtained by the Newtown Police Department. Arrests are not indications of guilt.
