A former postal employee from Rochester is accused of stealing smartphones from the mail. The suspect. 35-year-old Bobby Bullard, Jr., worked in the mail processing and distribution center. Federal investigators say he went through packages he was supposed to be sorting.
Special Agents from the Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General say surveillance video showed, on three separate occasions, that Bullard took packages containing cell phones off the conveyor belt, opened them, pocketed the phones, then threw away the packaging material.
If convicted, Bullard faces up to ten years in prison and $250,000 fine. He will return to federal court on March 21.
