WESTFIELD, Mass. (AP) - The case of a mail carrier charged with stealing thousands of dollars in cash and gift cards intended for residents along her route in Westfield and Southwick has been continued without finding.

The Republican (https://bit.ly/1F5MdJD ) reports that charges against 40-year-old Kerry Friend will be dismissed after a year if she meets conditions of her probation and is not charged with new offenses.

She also agreed to pay $236 in restitution.

Authorities say between August 2013 and October that Friend stole mail worth at least $2,000 from her U.S. Postal Service route, although the actual amount is believed to be much more. Police say she was caught on surveillance video using a stolen gift card at a store. She was charged in February with larceny.
