WASHINGTON (AP) - A former letter carrier has pleaded guilty to stealing checks and cash from the mail.
Forty-eight-year-old Ronald Pretlow entered the plea on Friday. Sentencing is set for May 3.
According to a statement of offense, the Postal Service began receiving complaints from customers on Pretlow's route. One resident said he did not receive a package containing $1,500 in cash.
Pretlow was arrested on Sept. 13 when he reported to work. Prosecutors say more than $10,000 in uncashed checks was found in his car.
