A Kite, GA Postmaster has pleaded guilty to misappropriating $112,000 in postal funds, federal officials said.

Grayson Carter, 55, of Wrightsville, Ga., entered the plea Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Augusta, Ga., according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia.

Carter also pleaded guilty to illegally issuing a postal order for $736, officials said.

While working between August 2005 and November 2006 at a post office in Kite, Ga., Carter misappropriated money intended for postal money orders for his personal use, the statement from U.S. Attorney Edmund A. Booth Jr. said.

Carter attempted to return most of the money before being discovered but still owed the United States Postal Service about $18,000 when the scheme was discovered, the statement said.

A sentencing hearing has not been set yet.
