TUPELO — A Lee County woman has been sentenced to probation for two years after pleading guilty to stealing items while working for the U. S. Postal Service.

WTVA TV reports 29-year-old Yolanda R. Jones of Plantersville pleaded guilty to one count of postal theft in January.

Jones was indicted in October of 2011 on five counts of taking items from the mail.

Court documents say she took money, gift cards, jewelry, and an MP3 player.

Prosecutors agreed to dismiss the other four charges against her.
