KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A 63-year old Missouri postal clerk has admitted stealing gift cards from the mail at a Kansas City mail processing center where she worked.

U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson says Veronica Grant waived her right to a grand jury and pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of theft of mail by a postal employee.

The Postal Service received a complaint in April 2015 that a T.J. Maxx gift card had been reported missing from the mail. When confronted, Grant admitted stealing the gift card and using it in Blue Springs.

Investigators found five additional cards in Grant’s purse after an October 2015 interview and later identified 11 victims of her mail theft.

A plea agreement with prosecutors will recommend probation and restitution to the victims.
