Carmichael man charged with conspiracy against USPS involving armed robbery, fraud

A Carmichael man was indicted Thursday on charges that allege a conspiracy against the U.S. Postal Service involving robbery, fraud and identity theft.

Damian Deleal, 30, was charged with conspiracy, armed robbery of a U.S. mail carrier, possessing a stolen postal key and mail, bank fraud and identity theft, according to a news release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California.

Deleal is accused of engaging in a conspiracy to rob a mail carrier, steal a postal key and use it to open residential mailboxes to commit bank fraud and identity theft with pilfered checks and cards, according to the release.

A co-conspirator robbed a mail carrier with a BB gun believed to have been supplied by Deleal in South Sacramento on March 9, 2018, and stole a postal key, according to the release.
