Postal Carrier Gets Probation For Stealing Mail

By  | 

A 15-year veteran of the U.S. Postal Service has been sentenced to probation for stealing mail.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced that 37-year-old John Bonney of Westminster was sentenced to two years of probation Thursday.

Investigators were alerted to a $100 Home Depot gift card that never reached its destination. Investigators were able to view surveillance at a Westminster Home Depot where the card was used and discovered Bonney, dressed in his uniform, had used the card.

Bonney was indicted by a federal grand jury in November. He pleaded guilty in January.

Bonney has resigned his position as a mail carrier. He delivered mail in Golden.
