KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City letter carrier has been charged with stealing mail from customers on her route and taking nearly $1,700 worth of government food benefit cards.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says a grand jury indicted 45-year-old Shawn C. Henderson on Tuesday on charges of stealing government property, stealing mail and aggravated identity theft.

Henderson was hired as a letter carrier in April 2013. Prosecutors allege that she stole mail from then until early August.

The indictment also alleges she removed greeting cards and gift cards from mail she was supposed to deliver.

Henderson does not have a listed phone number, and she did not have an attorney as of Tuesday.
