FAIRFIELD — A West Haven resident who worked as a supervisor at a local post office pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to mail theft, officials said.

Jessica Giles, 37, waived her right to be indicted and entered a guilty plea to the federal offense.

The charge against her stemmed from her actions while working as a supervisor at a U.S. Post Office in Fairfield from October 2019 through May, authorities said.

“Giles used the flashlight feature on her phone to examine the content of various envelopes that had been placed in the mail,” federal authorities said. “When she believed that an envelope contained U.S. currency, she opened the envelope, stole the cash that was found inside and, on multiple occasions, tore up and disposed of the envelope.”

Authorities said her actions were recorded on surveillance footage at the post office.

Giles was released pending sentencing, which the judge scheduled for Feb. 4, 2021. Giles faces up to five years in prison.
