CLEVELAND -- A U.S Postal Service mail carrier has been indicted for allegedly stealing the contents of 74 letters addressed to or sent from Twinsburg addresses, according to David A. Sierleja, acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Condrick E. Womack, Sr., 38, of Euclid, was indicted June 1 on one count of theft of mail matter by an officer or employee, a felony. An arraignment date has not yet been set.
The maximum that Womack could serve is five years, according to Mike Tobin with the U.S. district court.
According to prosecutors, Womack, who worked out of the Twinsburg branch of the U.S. Post Office on Darrow Road, allegedly stole checks and gift cards from USPS correspondence, cashing the checks and using the gift cards at various stores including Target and WalMart.
The alleged thefts occurred between June 2016 and Sept. 14, 2016.
U.S. attorneys say Womack embezzled letters, packages and "other items entrusted to him ... that were intended to be conveyed by mail."
Attorneys say the alleged thefts involved the contents of approximately 74 first class letters in envelopes addressed to or sent by multiple individuals at addresses in the Twinsburg area, according to the indictment.
A total cost associated with the alleged thefts is still being investigated, according to prosecutors.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Twinsburg Police Department, the Gates Mills Police Department and the U.S. Postal Service -- Office of Inspector General. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Henry F. DeBaggis.
