16 USPS workers accused of taking bribes to deliver cocaine


ATLANTA – Sixteen different U.S. Postal Service employees working in locations across metro Atlanta have been charged in connection with an investigation into cocaine distribution.

According to three separate federal indictments unsealed Tuesday, the employees allegedly took bribes in exchange for delivering packages of kilogram quantities of cocaine in a wide-reaching state operation.

“The defendants in this case allegedly sold that trust out to someone they knew to be a drug dealer, and simply for cash in their pockets, they were willing to endanger themselves and the residents on their routes and bring harmful drugs into the community,” U.S. Attorney John Horn said.
