Investigators arrested the 53-year-old woman in December after it was discovered that she was selling drugs from her work vehicle along her mail route in Ashtabula.

Spangler said she was thankful after being arrested because it forced her to confront issues of addiction and alcoholism.

A spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service Office of the Inspector General provided a statement regarding Spangler’s arrest:

Trafficking cocaine is a fourth-degree felony, according to the Ashtabula County judge.
