Former Postal Service Employee, Pleads Guilty to Theft of Mail by Postal Employee and Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Shabina Debbie, 54, of West Sacramento, pleaded guilty today to theft of mail by a Postal Service employee and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.

According to court documents, between October 2018 and February 2019, Debbie stole items from mail that had been entrusted to her in the course of her duties as a postal employee in Sacramento. One of the packages Debbie stole contained more than 3 pounds of marijuana. Debbie agreed to forfeit over $125,000 in cash found in her home during the execution of a search warrant.

This case is the product of an investigation by the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General. Assistant U.S. Attorney Denise N. Yasinow is prosecuting the case.

Debbie is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Mendez on March 14, 2023. Debbie faces a maximum statutory penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The actual sentence, however, will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.
