Dayton postal workers accused of opening packages, stealing illegal drugs

Two Dayton postal workers ripped open Priority Mail packages they suspected contained drugs and kept the marijuana and methamphetamine they found, according to federal court documents.

Desmen A. Pauley and Tyler O. Oder, who both worked at the U.S. Postal Service’s distribution center at 1111 E. Fifth St., have agreed to bills of information alleging possession with intent to distribute drugs.

Pauley told investigators he and Oder had been stealing narcotics for about 18 months, while Oder said he was working alone, according to a complaint filed in Dayton’s U.S. District Court.

Oder is scheduled for an arraignment and plea hearing Friday on one count of possessing with intent to distribute marijuana. Oder’s bill of information was filed Feb. 7.

    Thousands of pounds of cannabis move through UPS, FedEx and USPS everyday. Just more symptoms of the ridiculous nonsense of cannabis prohibition. Data from the Centers for Disease Control shows that cannabis is much safer than alcoholic beverages or tobacco products. Based on that fact alone it should be completely legal.
