A 46-year-old former Grangeville postal employee who stole thousands of dollars from a customer was sentenced to five years of probation, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Boise.

Mari A. Mort was also ordered to pay restitution of $7,721.58 to Water Oz, a company near Grangeville.

Mort, who worked at the post office from February of 2011 to June of 2013, pleaded guilty to misappropriating postal funds in March.

She charged Water Oz for packages they did not mail and then refunded the money to herself, according to the U.S. attorney.

The Office of the Inspector General for the United States Postal Service investigated.
