Oakland Man Sentenced To Prison For Armed Attacks Targeting East Oakland Postal Workers
OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A 31-year-old Oakland man has pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six years in federal prison for committing five armed robberies or attempted robberies of U.S Postal Service letter carriers in East Oakland last year including stealing mail containing California Employment Development Department debit cards.
Acting United States Attorney Stephanie M. Hinds and United States Postal Inspection Service Inspector in Charge Rafael Nuñez said David Leveren Quinn pleaded guilty Thursday and was quickly sentenced to prison.
According to his plea agreement, Quinn admitted that he used a stolen EDD debit card to make purchases and cash withdrawals amounting to over $10,000 including purchasing a Cadillac SUV that he later used in yet another attempted robbery.
Prosecutors said Quinn has admitted that between August 11, 2020, and September 25, 2020, he worked with one or more conspirators to commit five robberies or attempted robberies.
