SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A former northern Iowa postmaster accused of stealing painkillers from the mail has pleaded guilty in a Sioux City federal courtroom.

Fifty-five-year-old Danny Miller, of Ventura, was convicted of mail theft by a postal services employee. His trial had been scheduled to begin next week. A federal grand jury indicted Miller in October.

Federal prosecutors say Miller admitted that from about May 2013 through July 2014, while serving as postmaster for Forest City, he stole the prescription painkillers from the mail.

He’d been appointed Forest City postmaster in 2012. He’d also served as postmaster in Fertile.

A sentencing date hasn’t been set for Miller, who faces up to five years in prison.
