Postal theft charged in federal indictment

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – Postal employee Steven Joslyn faces up to five years in prison if he’s convicted of stealing $20 from the mail.
Joslyn, 49, of Ecru, was indicted Feb. 26 by a federal grand jury and charged with mail theft by a U.S. Postal Service employee. Notice of the case just became public on the court’s website.
The charge claims that on Sept. 11, he removed the money from a first class priority piece of mail in Tupelo.
A June 24 jury trial is set for the case, and Joslyn is free on $10,000 appearance bond after he pleaded not guilty on Monday before U.S. Magistrate Judge David A. Sanders in Aberdeen.
