This is not the first case of a US postal worker being caught delivering illegal substances 

Jermaine Sandifer, 40, from The Bronx, New York, was arrested in June 2016 after he was accused of accepting and delivering packages containing as much as two kilos of ­cocaine in exchange for thousands of dollars in kickbacks.

Prosecutors said the drug-filled deliveries would be shipped to the Highbridge Post Office, where Sandifer worked, between 2011 and 2013 from Puerto Rico and were addressed to various addresses in The Bronx.

Sandifer, who also went by the alias ‘Amigo’,  allegedly received between $1,000 and $5,000 for doling out the packages to his drug cohorts, reported the New York Daily News.
