A former U.S. Postal Service mail carrier will spend up to 10 years in prison for conspiring to deliver more than 4 pounds of cocaine.

Lancaster County Judge Merrill Spahn sentenced Carlos Medina, 57, of Lititz, to 4½ to 10 years in state prison for his role in a scheme to deliver cocaine while employed by the U.S. Postal Service.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security had connected Medina to an investigation of cocaine coming into the country. Investigators tracking a delivery saw Medina give a package to dealers in the county while on duty as a mail carrier, according to the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office.

 

Medina, who had worked 34 years for the Postal Service, told investigators he was approached by an unknown man about delivering packages on his mail route, the district attorney said. He said he knew the contents were illegal and accepted $1,000 for the delivery.
