HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – The treasurer of the Honolulu branch of the letter carriers union pleaded guilty Thursday afternoon to embezzling more than $80,000 from the union to feed his gambling habit.
David M. Ing, 46, has been the treasurer of branch 860 of the National Association of Letter Carriers for about 14 years. He works as a mailman out of a Sand Island postal facility.
He appeared in federal court Thursday afternoon to plead guilty to stealing $83,293 in union funds.
"Because of a gambling problem, I forged checks and stole money from the union treasury," Ing told Federal Judge Kevin Chang.
