Inspector Tony Robinson with the United States Postal Service said Langley was the woman seen in surveillance video, taking mail and a package out of Brandon Payne's mailbox in Midtown earlier this week.

Robinson said she has many different aliases and according to jail records, she's been in and out of jail since 2004.

Robinson said it's unclear what federal charges Langley could also face from the USPS.

Stealing mail is a federal crime and the penalty can be up to five years in prison.
