Postal worker accused of stealing Kohl's coupons during daily route

Posted: Updated:
WATERFORD, Mich. (WJBK) -

An Oakland County postal carrier is accused of stealing Kohl's store coupons from addresses along her daily route.

Authorities believe Joann Limbaugh-Nedo stole $10 and $5-off coupons during her Waterford route and used them in-store between June and August 2013.

A Kohl's supervisor at the store in White Lake Township became suspicious, when she noticed a female letter carrier, in uniform, using several coupons during several store visits. The supervisor says the amount of coupons used was more than customers normally have.

The supervisor alerted the U.S. Postal Service Office, and a Kohl's investigator began tracking Limbaugh-Nedo's purchases. The investigator looked at the addresses linked with each coupon used, and found the addresses were along her daily mail route.

Limbaugh-Nedo was questioned, and denied taking the coupons. The criminal complaint says answered with, "I use mine and my daughter's that come to my house. I shop a lot at Kohl's."

Then authorities told her they knew about the addresses of the coupons, and she fessed up.

According to the complaint, one of the agents asked her why she took them and she replied, "I don't know. I knew it was wrong. Because it was convenient. I don't know."

At the end of the interview Limbaugh-Nedo voluntarily resigned her job, but later rescinded her resignation.

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a sweeping report Thursday that examined New York City's recovery progress from Superstorm Sandy and promised to reform a much-maligned program that was supposed to rebuild wrecked homes.
