    A Hillsborough County mail carrier is accused of trying to sell nearly $20,000 of fraudulent tax refund checks.

    The Tampa Bay Times reports 40-year-old Orville Dwight Hylton faces a charge of theft of government property after trying to sell the checks at a discount price.

    A federal complaint says the checks came from the same ZIP code where Hylton delivers mail.

    No further details were immediately available.
