Former Roxbury mailman sentenced to prison, ordered to repay $9K allegedly spent on stolen credit card
A former mail carrier in Roxbury was sentenced by a federal judge to serve four months in prison and ordered to replay more than $9,000 he allegedly spent using a credit card he stole from his mail route, according to authorities.
Following his prison sentence, Andrae Wilson, 31, will serve an additional two years of supervised release after pleading guilty last fall to two counts of mail theft by a postal employee, the United States Attorney’s office announced this week.
Prosecutors allege that Wilson, a part-time letter carrier hired in fall 2004, spent more than $9,000 “on goods and services” during Dec. 2006 using a credit card he stole from mail that was supposed to be delivered to a Roxbury woman along his mail route, who reported the credit card theft and that purchases were made on that card one month later.
After reviewing delivery records as well as surveillance video from one of the stores where the stolen credit card was allegedly used, federal authorities identified Wilson as the person using the resident's credit card, according to a statement issued by prosecutors Tuesday.
