Great Falls postal worker pleads guilty to stealing mail, wire fraud

Great Falls Tribune

A Great Falls postal service driver pleaded guilty last week to federal charges of possessing stolen mail and wire fraud after depositing checks she overwrote with her name.

Jacqueline Rose Hydock, 33, could face up to 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release, with sentencing scheduled Dec. 13, according to a press release from the District of Montana U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The release said Hydock drove for a Great Falls postal service contract route between post office locations in downtown Great Falls and Black Eagle. Hydock made a series of check deposits in 2022 at Montana Federal Credit Union with checks from various people who put them in the mail, overriding them in a black felt pen with the payee’s name changed to Hydock’s.

The largest check deposited was for $3,000 on June 6, 2022, according to court documents.
