POSTAL WORKER, EX-ALABAMA FOOTBALL PLAYER CHARGED IN MAIL THEFT

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – A former postal employee who also once played for the University of Alabama football team has been indicted after authorities say he stole gift cards from the mail.

Terrill Chatman, 48, of Birmingham was indicted Wednesday on charges of theft of mail by a Postal Service employee in September and October of 2015.

A statement from U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance says Chatman stole a $50 Publix gift card from the mail in Birmingham in September 2015, and the next month stole a $10 Wal-Mart gift card.

According to the UA website, Chatman was an offensive lineman on the successful 1989 team. He was one of nine Alabama players who captured all-SEC honors that year.

It’s unclear whether Chatman has an attorney.
