GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — A former letter carrier has been convicted of delivering packages of marijuana from a post office to the home of a conspirator.
A federal jury on Friday convicted 33-year-old Takisha Cole of Washington of possession with intent to distribute marijuana, use of a communications device to facilitate drug trafficking, and bribery.
According to evidence presented at trial, Cole worked as a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service in Silver Spring. Prosecutors say the conspirator paid Cole to obtain and deliver packages containing marijuana to him.
Authorities say Cole picked up the packages at the post office and delivered them to the conspirator, even after his address was no longer on her route.
