MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- A Menomonie man is accused of stealing more than $50,000 while he worked at the post office.

On Wednesday, a federal grand jury indicted Robert Colaizy, 62, of Menomonie. He's charged with making a false entry in an account and record. It's related to his duties as an U.S. Postal Service employee. Colaizy is accused of claiming there were more stamps in the post office's inventory than there actually were in January, and pocketing money from stamp sales. He was working at the Menomonie Post Office at the time.

If convicted, he could spend 10 years in federal prison.
