Former Oklahoma Postmaster Charged With Embezzlement

A Fort Gibson woman was charged late Monday with embezzling nearly $1,200 while employed as postmaster at the U.S. Post Office in Hulbert.

Prosecutors allege Galvan converted money orders and cash totaling $1,199.84 to her own use between April 1 and July 20.

An affidavit filed by Investigator David Hill states a money order for $450 cleared the Federal Reserve Bank in St. Louis, Mo., on June 30, when postal records showed the money order had not yet been sold by the Hulbert post office.
