Postal worker pleads guilty to stealing money orders

Schenectady woman faces up to 10 years in prison

ALBANY — A former United States Postal Service retail clerk from Schenectady pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $10,000 worth of money orders from her employer, the Department of Justice said. 

Naisha Wiley, 34, was arrested in late March, accused of issuing herself a $1,000 money order at the office where she worked. 

Wiley admitted that during her time working as a clerk in post offices in Montgomery County, she stole USPS money orders that totaled to $10,000 and gift cards out of the mail, the Department of Justice said.

Wiley faces up to 10 years in prison, three years of parole and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced in October. She may also be ordered to pay restitution to her victims. 

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Barnett.
