Fraud charges for 3, including 2 post office managers in Maryland

The Federal Bureau of Investigations used a multitude of records to build a case against two men and one woman for a large mail, wire fraud and bribery scheme. Two of those arrested, one of the men, age 37, and the 43-year-old woman, were U.S. Post Office managers in Waverly and Pikesville, Maryland, respectively.

According to authorities, the two managers were allegedly taking bribes from cleaning and landscaping services. Those payments were reportedly in exchange for payments issued through fraudulent checks. The other man, age 37, allegedly paid the two post office managers so they would approve fake invoices submitted to the post office for payment.

After payments were received, the three defendants would then split the money, according to authorities. Over $400,000 was charged to the Waverly Post Office for landscaping services since 2007.

Authorities also reported that the manager at the Waverly Post Office was linked to drug trafficking due to text messages. However, it is not certain if charges have been filed or will be filed for drug trafficking at this time.

Should the three defendants be found guilty on the charges, each could face incarceration of up to 15 years.

While these criminal charges are serious, the defendants have a right to a fair trial. They are entitled to representation by legal counsel who will ensure their rights are protected as their cases make their way through the court process. Each defendant is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law by a preponderance of the evidence and beyond a reasonable doubt.
