Postal Worker Accused of Stealing Mail

An Akron postal worker is in trouble for rifling through and looting mail that didn't belong to her. 34-year-old Chrisoula Pipilakis was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of theft of mail by a postal employee, according to the PD.

Prosecutors say she worked for the U.S. Postal Service for three years in Akron and stole seven gift cards totaling $180, a paltry sum if you ask us. If you're going to rob the mail, go full-tilt. Rip open every colored greeting card envelope and dig for every $10 birthday check from every kindly grandmother.

$180? Hardly seems like a worthy payoff given the risk of up to five years in jail if you're caught. Hopefully she enjoyed a nice shopping spree at Wal-Mart or a fancy dinner at Red Lobster before she was nabbed.
