Updated:

 

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A New Orleans woman who worked for the U.S. Postal Service has been charged with stealing $450 in cash from a letter addressed to a Metairie resident.

Twenty-eight-year-old Chanel McGinnis was charged Friday in a federal bill of information with embezzlement of mail matter by a postal employee.

The court filing accuses her of stealing the letter containing the money in February 2011.

She faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison if she is convicted of the charge.
