BELOIT--A former Beloit postal worker was sentenced to two years of probation Thursday in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, for stealing gift cards from the mail.
Tamara Donald, 39, of Loves Park, Illinois, had pleaded guilty to the charge Aug. 3, according to a news release from the U.S. attorney's office.
