Two people from Northeast Ohio were charged with mail theft by a postal employee, said Steven M. Dettelbach, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Indicted are Joseph W. Dixon, III, 36, of Parma, a full time career carrier, and Tiffany C. Miller, 26, of Cleveland, a city carrier assistant.
A separate indictment against Miller charges that, while she was a Postal Service employee, she stole mail from Postal Service collection boxes in Cleveland and an envelope addressed to a resident of Euclid.
If convicted, the defendants’ sentences will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to each case, including the defendants’ prior criminal record, if any, the defendants’ roles in the offenses and the characteristics of the violations. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
These cases are being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Justin Seabury Gould. The cases were investigated by the United States Postal Service, Office of Inspector General.
