Baltimore Mailman Delivered Marijuana Along Postal Route
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A letter carrier and his co-conspirator pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute marijuana on his mail route.
Postal Route C-032 stretches from Fulton to Poppleton Streets in West Baltimore. It was William McRae’s postal route, where he would distribute drugs along his way.
Federal investigators built the drug distribution case against McRae based out of a Southwest Baltimore post office.
“We trust our US postal workers, if you don’t trust anybody else,” Don, a Baltimore resident said.
“I wouldn’t think you jeopardize a job like that. I wouldn’t,” Jimmie Carter, a Baltimore resident said.
His accomplice, Michael Gray, pleaded guilty on Monday.
Federal officials said McRae delivered more than 100 kilograms– 220 pounds– of marijuana on his route.
“100,000, I mean, how would you even do it? Through packaging?” said Baltimore resident Carissa Jessop.
Several of the packages were addressed to apartments across from Hollins Market, but never made it there.
