A Jersey City woman was arrested today and charged with burglarizing two U.S. Post Offices on six occasions. At the time of her arrest, she was in possession of a large number of apparently stolen credit cards.

According to U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger, Zyeama Johnson, 29, broke into one Hudson County post office five times; on January 10, 13, 21, 26, and February 3 of 2023. On February 7, 2023, Johnson broke into a second post office location and was arrested by law enforcement conducting surveillance as she left the building.

While the exact post offices were not disclosed, it appears they were in Jersey City.

Authorities say Johnson had previously been employed at the post office and terminated from her position.

An affidavit by a Special Agent of the United States Postal Inspection Service describes how video cameras allegedly showed Johnson parking at the post offices after hours, opening a door accessible only to employees using a code, and leaving on several occasions with United States Postal Service bins containing mail and what appeared to be Amazon bins. On each occasion, Johnson used a black Chrysler Voyager which she had rented and failed to return. GPS data placed Johnson at the post offices on the dates of the burglaries.

At the time of her arrest, Johnson allegedly claimed she was at the post office to pick up a tax document. She was allegedly carrying two credit cards and one debit card in the name of three different individuals.

A search of Johnson's car turned up approximately 38 other debit and credit cards that were in the names of approximately 36 individuals. Her phone records indicated that she had attempted to sell cards for between $50 and $300 apiece.

Johnson is charged with six counts of burglary of a post office. She appeared today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Cathy Waldor in Newark federal court and was released on $100,000 unsecured bond.

Each count of burglary carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
