September 7, 2012

MINNEAPOLIS—Yesterday, in federal court, a former U.S. postal carrier was charged with stealing from the mail he delivered. Giang Nguyen, age 48, of Superior, Wisconsin, was charged via an Information with one count of theft of mail by postal employee.

Allegedly, from March of 2010 through January 7, 2011, 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 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. All sentences will be determined by a federal district court judge. This case is the result of an investigation by the United States Postal Service-Office of Inspector General. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John E. Kokkinen.

A defendant, of course, is presumed innocent until he or she pleads guilty or is proven guilty at trial.
