CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A woman has been accused of misappropriating money while serving as postmaster in Nora Springs.

Last week a grand jury indicted DeAnn Lewman on two counts of misappropriation of postal funds and 42 counts of false entries. Federal court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment on her behalf.

Prosecutors say that between May 2014 and January 2015, Lewman took nearly $3,000 in cash and stamps and took nearly $3,100 that was meant to buy Postal Service money orders in December 2014 and January 2015.

She’s scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids.
