Postal worker in fraud case sentenced

Postal worker in fraud case to serve 3 years probation

SILVER CITY, N.M. (KRQE) – A former U.S. Postal Service worker has been sentenced to three years probation for falsifying records.

Gabriel Arsola, 40, of Silver City was sentenced Monday. He was also ordered to pay more than $10,000 in restitution to the postal service.

Arsola was charged in 2013 with dozens of counts of making false entries and reports on postal service forms to conceal a scheme to defraud the agency.

Arsola pleaded guilty in April to one count as part of a plea agreement. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
