Oswego County Postal Worker Charged

A part time postal worker in Oswego County was charged with stealing mail. Three residents along Christa Koagel's mail route reported that they had sent money in greeting cards, that never made it to their destination.

An investigation was started, and postal investigators mailed 24 cards from her route with marked bills in them, while she was working. Only 5 of the fake cards arrived at their destinations.


How could anyone be so stupid? This woman had it made with a federal job, benefits, and pay. She threw it all away for a lousy couple hundred bucks?! Now she is facing federal prison time, not to mention a permanent record of a felony.

I would just like to state that Christa majorly hurt her family for that couple of dollars. She needed the postal job for the health coverage for her very sick child that now will not recieve the medical care she needs. It is sad that people can do such terrible things.
