TAMPA, Fla. -

A Hillsborough County mail carrier is accused of trying to sell nearly $20,000 of fraudulent tax refund checks.
    
The Tampa Bay Times reported that 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.
