OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A former U.S. Postal Service employee in Omaha was indicted for mail theft, and prosecutors said Monday that they have identified about 216 victims.

The indictment alleges 29-year-old Austin M. Thomas committed theft by mail between September of last year and this past January, according to the indictment.

The government alleges the thefts involve “a large number of card-sized envelopes and greeting cards that contained gift cards and cash.”
