*Postal worker charged with embezzling

By Alex Bridges -- abridges@nvdaily.com

HARRISONBURG -- Authorities say a former U.S. Postal Service carrier took thousands of dollars from mail intended for recipients along his routes in Winchester.

A grand jury returned a two-count indictment in U.S. District Court in Harrisonburg on Wednesday against Jason McKinley Dean charging him with embezzling one or more parcels while working as a U.S. Postal employee from September 2009 through May 20, 2010.

The second count charges Dean with destroying, hiding and/or opening one or more pieces of mail entrusted to him to deliver to intendent recipients.

U.S. Postal Service special agent Joy Younce, with the office of the inspector general, sought a warrant to search Dean's residence, 357 Brown St., Strasburg, and his 2002 Dodge Dakota, according to an affidavit filed in the court May 17.

The agent intended to seize property identified in another court documents as any mail, greeting cards or letters on the premises not addressed to Strasburg residence or any residents who live there.
