ST. LOUIS (AP) – A former U.S. Postal Service worker from suburban St. Louis has been convicted as part of a conspiracy to steal mail.
A three-day trial for 23-year-old Quentin Cook of Florissant ended Wednesday with a guilty verdict in U.S. District Court in St. Louis. Federal prosecutors say Cook and three other former employees of a Postal Service distribution center in Hazelwood diverted mail to themselves and other acquaintances. They stole mail that contained electronics, computer equipment, marijuana and other items.
The other suspects _ 23-year-old Korey Howard, 23-year-old Edward Lewis and 22-year-old Sean West _ pleaded guilty in December. They face sentencing in March.
A sentencing date for Cook has not been set.
