A sticky-fingered US Postal Service worker has been sentenced for stealing video-game consoles from the mail.
Between February and April of last year, Zoheb Deura stole “numerous packages” from the Middlebury, Conn., post office where he worked as a supervisor.
The items that Deura took included PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch consoles, as well as an Apple iPhone and computer, plus “footwear and clothing items”, federal prosecutors said.
The 34-year-old pleaded guilty in October to embezzlement of mail.
Deura will now serve three years of probation, the first nine months of which he will be under house arrest. The ex-USPS worker was also slapped with a $20,000 fine.
