TULSA, Okla. – Two U. S. Postal Service employees accused of stealing marijuana from packages in a mail sorting facility in Oklahoma have pleaded guilty.
The Tulsa World reports that 47-year-old Laura Mae Campbell pled guilty to conspiracy under a plea bargain on Monday. Her plea comes after her colleague, Derek Miller, admitted in January to stealing drugs from packages since 2015.
Police indicate that the U. S. Postal Service Office of the Inspector General received a tip in July that employees were using drugs in the packages at the Tulsa center. The indictment of Campbell and Miller, also known as “Chuck the Sniffer,” were involved.
Authorities obtained more than 60 pounds of marijuana from Miller’s house and more than 10 pounds of marijuana from Campbell’s residence in September.
Both are expected to be sentenced in the spring.
