SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A Syracuse man who worked for the U.S. Postal Service admitted in federal court Thursday he gave a key to a mail collection box, postal service clothing, and satchel to another man who used them to steal mail.
28-year-old Quayshaun Mitchell could face up to ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the crime when sentenced.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says that in entering the plea, Mitchell admitted he gave the key and uniform to Kevin Ronny Williams on March 5 of last year, so that Williams could steal mail. According to prosecutors, Williams stole 49 pieces of mail from a collection box in Liverpool. All the mail was recovered. Williams pled guilty to charges related to the thefts and is awaiting sentencing.
