    A former Massachusetts postal worker has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $20,000 from the postal service.

    Federal prosecutors say 37-year-old Dennis Reis, of Taunton, entered his plea Monday to one count of embezzlement and one count of theft of public money.

    Reis formerly worked as the lead sales and service associate at the East Taunton Post Office.

    Prosecutors say Reis' embezzlement scheme involved him voiding cash sales of stamps by customers. Reis would then enter a "no sale" transaction and take the money paid by customers without the system accounting for it.
