TUCSON, Ariz. -- A former postal employee in Tucson has been indicted for allegedly stealing more than $76,000 in stamps.
 
A federal grand jury in Tucson charged Cheryl A. Molera, 53, with theft of public money or property.
 
Molera was employed by the U.S. Postal Service as a window service technician. Prosecutors allege that she stole stamp inventory that was in her possession and care by using the Postal Service's point of sale system to manipulate the stamp inventory control system.
 
The indictment claims the stamp inventory was valued at $76,526.
 
Molera appeared in court June 22 and was released after promising to appear at all future court appearances and other conditions set by the court.

She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
