MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Two former Orange Beach postal carriers have
gotten probation for stealing prepaid debit cards from mail on their route.
Lori Waller and Tonya Calderon, who are both 34, pleaded guilty in March to theft of mail by a postal employee.
Senior U.S. District Judge Charles Butler Jr. also ordered both women to pay $25 a month until they pay Orange Beach resident Theresa Jones the $100 she lost.
Court records show Calderon and Waller lived together in Foley and worked as contract mail carriers when they took two prepaid debit cards sent by Verizon and used them to make purchases from July to September.
In another case, 26-year-old Christopher R. Smith, of Gulf Shores, pleaded guilty to theft of the mail by a postal carrier.
