RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - An employee of the U.S. Postal Service in western South Dakota has been indicted on a theft of mail charge.

Authorities are accusing Daniel Newman, of Rapid City, of embezzling letters, post cards, packages, bags and other mail between November and March. Authorities say Newman stole money, gift cards and other items contained in the mail he embezzled.

Federal court records show a jury trial against Newman has been scheduled for late August. He was arrested Friday and has pleaded not guilty to one count of theft of mail matter by officer or employee.

Newman’s attorney could not immediately be reached to comment on the charge.
