WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A southern Kansas postal clerk is accused in federal court of stealing nearly $14,000 while at work.

A federal grand jury in Wichita, Kansas, indicted 25-year-old Micah Hutchinson of Arkansas City of one count of employee theft from the U.S. Postal Service.

The indictment alleges that from October to December of last year, Hutchinson issued to herself money orders worth roughly $13,780 while working at the post office in Rock, Kansas. She allegedly then cashed the money orders, using the money for her own benefit.

Online court records don’t show whether Hutchinson has an attorney.

The felony count is punishable by up to a decade in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
