Valdosta-- A man and woman are sentenced to federal prison for their roles in burglarizing a Valdosta post office.

Thirty-six-year-old Trelliney Turner got 20 years, and 39-year-old William Broxton faces 25 years.

On September 3, 2004, Turner was a Post Office employee when Broxton broke into the building and stole mail containing cash and checks worth about $266,000.

The pair was convicted of conspiracy to steal U.S. mail, theft of mail, interstate transportation of stolen property and money laundering.

In addition, Broxton was convicted of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two drug counts.

Robert Broxton, a third person charged in the indictment, remains at large.
