MINNEAPOLIS - A former U.S. postal carrier stands charged with stealing mail from the customers he delivered to.
Giang Nguyen of Superior, Wisconsin was charged in federal court Thursday with one count of theft of mail by postal employee.
Prosecutors say from March of 2010 through January 7, 2011, the 48-year-old Nguyen removed applications for Menards rebate checks, the actual rebate checks, and Menards Big Game Money Cards from the mail he was entrusted to deliver.
During this time period, Nguyen was employed by the Duluth Post Office. On January 7, 2011, Nguyen was arrested at a Menards store.
If convicted, Nguyen faces a potential maximum penalty of five years in prison.
