USPS worker caught delivering more than mail
ORLANDO, Florida (NBC) — A Kissimmee, Florida postal worker has been arrested after investigators said he made special drug deliveries on his route.
Federal agents say Juan Fonseca was routing drug deliveries to several vacant homes in the area just down the street from where Fonseca used to live.
The Kissimmee postal inspector first became suspicious of a package along Fonseca’s route in September.
A search warrant revealed 24 pounds of marijuana, followed by a box two days later, with 22 pounds of pot.
The post office said it found another 5 pounds of cocaine right after it launched an investigation into Fonseca in November.
Investigators said an undercover camera in Fonseca’s mail truck showed him driving the delivery van with his knees while snorting cocaine up to six times per day.
The video also apparently shows Fonseca sifting through mail, stealing money from Christmas cards and envelopes as well as snagging Netflix return DVDs.
Investigators said they discovered the drugs being shipped from Puerto Rico with sequential mailing labels all to Fonseca’s 34746 route.
Fonseca was arrested, as was Henry Fuentes Morales, who investigators said received at least two of the special deliveries.
