"The vast majority of the nation’s 400,000 postal employees are honest, hard-working individuals. It is troubling when a few of those employees choose to violate the trust given to them to use their positions for personal gain. These investigations show that USPS OIG special agents and postal inspectors will work diligently to find those few employees who choose to deliver drugs instead of the mail, and will seek their criminal prosecution and removal from the Postal Service. The employees named in these charges threw away their federal career for a few hundred dollars. Other employees who are engaging in this conduct should ask themselves, is it worth it? To report postal employee misconduct or criminal activity, contact special agents at 888-USPS-OIG or www.uspsoig.gov.”The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys, Matthew B. Kall and Daniel J. Riedl. The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and Office of Inspector General, Cleveland.
