Postal Worker Charged With Theft 

43-year-old Angela Russell was a part time employee of the Winn post office.

Police say she stole gift cards out of people’s holiday packages.

Penobscot County sheriff’s deputies say Russell stole several gift cards out of holiday mailings, then used them at local stores.

Police were tipped off by a concerned citizen who said several gift cards she’d mailed never reached their destinations.

Police contacted local stores, and figured out where those gift cards had been used. Store surveillance video led them to Russell.

Russell has resigned from her job at the Winn post office.
