PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - In a story June 15 about a woman who pleaded guilty to stealing veterans’ medications, The Associated Press erroneously identified her employer. She worked for UPS Inc., not the U.S. Postal Service.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Ex-UPS worker pleads guilty to stealing vets’ medications

A former UPS Inc. worker has pleaded guilty to stealing prescription narcotics intended for outpatients of the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Maine

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A former UPS Inc. worker has pleaded guilty to stealing prescription narcotics intended for outpatients of the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Maine.

The Sun Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1UOJE92) 37-year-old Jennifer Leighton of Auburn entered the plea Tuesday in a federal court in Portland.

Federal officials say Leighton worked for UPS in Auburn between July and September 2015. Court records say she stole at least six packages of prescription narcotic medications shipped from the center in Togus to outpatients.

Officials say Leighton faces up to three years in prison. She will be sentenced after a pre-sentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.
