KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A Kansas City postal employee pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing mail.

Terry G. Williams, 55, waived his right to a grand jury and pleaded guilty to a federal information that charges him with theft of mail by a Postal Service employee.

Williams, a postal support employee at the Processing and Distribution Center in Kansas City, admitted that he stole greeting cards, gift cards and Netflix DVD’s between April 4, 2015, and April 26, 2016. Williams said he pulled those items from the trays of letter mail he was loading to be processed. 

According to a press release, federal agents watched Williams pull out colored envelopes from the trays and place them in his pockets and into a personal bag that was underneath his work station. When agents approached him at the end of his shift, he dropped the bag on the ground and ran away from the agents. Agents chased Williams, tackled him to the ground and handcuffed him.

When agents took Williams’ bag, they found 232 greeting cards and two gift cards. They also found 104 greeting cards, 34 Netflix DVD’s and three gift cards inside the trunk of his car.

Williams is facing up to five years in federal prison.
