Former Williamson County Mail Carrier Sentenced for Stealing Rebate Checks

Brittany Freeman, 27, of Johnston City, Illinois (Williamson County), was sentenced this week to three years’ probation and a $100 fine and was ordered to pay $704.10 in restitution to her victims. Freeman had earlier pled guilty to theft of mail by a postal service employee. In February and March 2020, while working as a mail carrier, Freeman stole over $700 worth of rebate checks sent by Menard’s to customers along her routes. Surveillance cameras at a nearby Menard’s store captured Freeman using the rebate checks for herself soon after stealing them.

 “Any tampering with the  U.S.  mail system is taken seriously,  particularly when postal service employees abuse their position of trust,” U.S. Attorney Steven D. Weinhoeft said.

The case was investigated by the  United  States  Postal  Service,  Office of the  Inspector General. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Peter T. Reed.
