Postal worker accused of stealing mail put on probation

Mail Theft

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota postal worker accused of stealing gift cards and other mail has been sentenced to two years of probation.

Thirty-six-year-old Kayla Ottmo, of Pukwana, pleaded guilty in November to theft of mail by a postal service employee. Federal authorities say she stole letters, packages, bags and mail that were not addressed to her.

Prosecutors say she took the gift cards and converted them for her own use.

Ottmo, who was employed as a rural carrier associate, was ordered to pay $315 in restitution.
