HOUSTON (AP) - Two U.S. Postal Service workers have pleaded guilty to stealing gift cards including some found hidden in bathrooms of a mail processing center.

The Houston Chronicle (https://bit.ly/16r4eIU ) reports James Bernard Quinn and Joycelyn Jordan face up to five years in prison in the separate cases.

Quinn on Monday pleaded guilty to mail theft. Prosecutors say Amazon gift cards were stolen from December 2013 through April 2014.

Prosecutors say the investigation began when opened mail was discovered in the ceiling tiles of several men’s restrooms at a Houston processing and distribution center. The gift cards were redeemed by someone using Quinn’s email address.

Jordan on Monday pleaded guilty to mail theft over cash and gift cards stolen last June.

Messages left with the Postal Service weren’t immediately returned Tuesday.
