A former postal worker has admitted to stealing at least $4,681 from the Liverpool post office over two years. Kevin Mech, 38, of Clay, repeatedly slipped cash out of a drawer in the post office, according to an article from The Post-Standard.
Mech pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a misdemeanor of stealing cash while he was working at the post office as a part-time flexible sales and service associate. U.S. postal inspectors have reviewed surveillance videos from December 2009 through May 2010, according to Mech's written plea agreement. The videos showed Mech removing money from his drawer.
Mech has admitted to stealing money from drawers between 30 and 40 times, stealing between $8,000 and $10,000, according to the plea agreement. He also admitted to selling stamps without entering the purchases into a computer. However, there is video evidence that he has put some money back, according to the plea agreement, but he still owes more than $2,700.
