UPDATE: Buchanan County woman gets two years in prison for stealing mail
A Buchanan County woman was ordered to prison today for two years and four months for stealing mail and using others' credit cards.
Jada Ratliff, 38, admitted to the crimes in federal court in Abingdon.
She said she's in recovery now but was addicted to drugs when she stole the mail in 2015. Evidence showed she used a screw driver to break into two dozen mailboxes at the Vansant post office and also grabbed mail from several more boxes.
She used at least one stolen credit card to make nearly $1,000 in purchases. She was ordered to pay restitution of more than $2,600 to several victims.
