NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Federal prosecutors say three U.S. Postal Service carriers stole valuables - including cash and gift cards - from mail they were delivering.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced the indictments Friday.

Prosecutors say 27-year-old Anisha Gallin, a New Orleans mail carrier, was charged with four counts of mail theft and accused of stealing a check worth $200 in July.

Twenty-seven-year-old Joshua Gresham, a carrier in Belle Chasse, was accused of stealing three pieces of mail with $370 in them in July 2014.

Edwards O’Neil, also 27 and a carrier in Belle Chasse, was accused of stealing two gift cards each worth $100 in December 2013.

If convicted, they each face five years in prison on each count, supervised released, fines and restitution.
