United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that four employees of the United States Postal Service were indicted for various crimes in connection with the distribution of marijuana.
Authorities say on November 27, 33-year-old Unterria J. Rogers was indicted in two cases for conspiring to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute quantities of marijuana, distribution and possession with intent marijuana, use of firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime and embezzlement of packages from the U.S. mail entrusted to him for delivery.
They say on November 28, 26-year-old Devon Donald, along with 25-year-old Shambria Hill and 26-year-old Sade Martin, all of Mobile, were all indicted for conspiring to embezzle packages from the U.S. mail entrusted to them for delivery and embezzlement of packages from the U.S. mail entrusted to them for delivery.
"Most postal workers are honest and conscientious about their work and they would never become involved in the kinds of crimes that these four defendants have been charged by the grand jury," United States Attorney Moore said. "They citizens of this district should not have to worry about whether the U.S. mail is being compromised and particularly by employees of the U.S. Postal Service. We take this kind of alleged conduct by Postal Service employees very seriously and I appreciate law enforcement partners who aggressively investigated these cases and brought them to the U.S. Attorney's Office."
