CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — A postal worker admitted to stealing mail assigned to her postal route in Clinton Township, according to federal investigators.

On Dec. 12, a postal service customer in Clinton Township said they did not receive their $100 Kohl's gift card expected in the mail. Investigators say the gift card was redeemed at a Kohl's store in Troy, with a debit card belonging to Latasha Lopez.
