Federal contractor pleads guilty in $1.2 million Postal Service scheme

A federal contractor from Rochester Hills pleaded guilty Thursday to embezzling more than $1 million in government funds from the United States Postal Service, officials announced.

An indictment filed this year accused Michael Rymar of a scheme that lasted from 2015-18 and involved his company, Horizons Materials & Management LLC.

Postal service engineers awarded the firm more than $5 million in contracts for repairs on USPS buildings in Michigan and New York, but “the documentation Rymar provided contained false and fraudulent statements, oftentimes dramatically and falsely overstating the amount he paid subcontractors to complete the repairs,” federal officials said in a statement Thursday.
