She was arrested for the crime in December.

Investigators said that Spangler sold drugs from her mail truck along her route throughout Ashtabula County.

A spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service Office of the Inspector General provided a statement regarding the accusations and arrest involving Spangler.

“The vast majority of the U.S. Postal Service’s 630,000 employees are hard-working, trustworthy individuals, working around the clock to deliver the nation’s mail. Unfortunately, a few of them decide to abuse that trust and engage in criminal activity. When they do, special agents with the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General will work with our law enforcement partners, such as the Crime Enforcement Agency of Ashtabula County, in identifying and investigating those employees and seek their prosecution and removal from the Postal Service. To report criminal activity by postal employees, contact our hotline at www.uspsoig.gov or 888-USPS-OIG.”
U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General Special Agent Scott Balfour

Spangler is expected to be court on Aug. 24 at 11:30 a.m.
