KCK postal worker accused of stealing drugs

KANSAS CITY, Kansas (AP) – Federal prosecutors have accused a U.S. Postal Service employee in Kansas City, Kan., with stealing prescription pain medicine from the mail.

Barry Grissom, U.S. attorney for Kansas, said in a release Thursday that 40-year-old Sherry Robertson of Kansas City, Kan., faces five counts of theft of mail by a postal employee and one count of possession with intent to distribute hydrocodone. She’s accused of removing pills from the mail on several separate occasions in 2012 and 2013.

Robertson faces up to five years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 on each count.

Online court records don’t list a lawyer for Robertson.
