Petersburg postal worker indicted by grand jury

Posted: Updated:
PETERSBURG, Ohio -

An employee of the Petersburg post office faces charges after the Mahoning County  Grand Jury indicted her on charges of tampering with records and theft.

Assistant Mahoning County Prosecutor Nick Modarelli tells 21 News that Adrianne Barnes, 29, of Youngstown is accused of selling money orders at the post office, but holding on to the money and no recording the sale for a few days or weeks.

Modarelli says that in essence, Barnes was giving herself interest free loans at the expense of the postal service from last September through March of this year.

The theft charge stems from Barnes allegedly selling postage stamps to customers, then pocketing the money herself.

Modarelli  says it is estimated that Barnes took in $2,600 between early 2014 and early this year.

According to Modarelli, Barnes has been placed on leave by the Postal Service.

A summons has been issued for Barnes to appear in court to answer the charges.
