NY Postal Workers Arrested in Marijuana Bust, 129lbs Siezed

Postal Workers Arrested in Marijuana Bust

The U.S. Department of Justice has announced that Federal agents arrested 8 U.S. Postal Service workers in Bethpage, New York in connection with an alleged mail theft and marijuana distribution conspiracy.

Agents seized about 129 pounds of marijuana in 12 different packages. The workers, who range in age from 25 to 43, allegedly stole packages suspected of containing marijuana from the processing line instead of reporting the suspicious packages and re-labeling them to send to new addresses.

The eight workers are each charged with theft of mail and conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute.
