Postal service worker arrested for stealing credit cards

Miami Beach police accuse postal worker of stealing identities

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Miami Beach police arrested a U.S. postal service worker for stealing credit cards that she was entrusted with delivering. 

Spring Lite, a Miami Beach resident, alerted authorities when American Express notified her that the credit card that she had been waiting for to arrive had been stolen. 

Miami Beach police officer Ernesto Rodriguez said other victims had also alerted the U.S. Postal Service. Investigators tracked Nasheria Nicole James, who confessed to stealing credit cards for about five months and giving them to her boyfriend.

"This is going to spare so many people the agony of having their identity stolen," Lite said. 

James lost her job and is facing charges of running an organized scheme to defraud, unlawful possession of stolen credit and debit cards and unlawful possession of five or more identifications. James Lorenzo Macklin, her boyfriend, faces charges of grand theft.
