3 US Postal Service employees arrested, charged with bribery


Update: DC postal manager, two letter carriers charged with running marijuana distribution scheme

The acting manager of two post offices in Washington, DC and two underlings have been arrested for accepting the money and using the mail service as a pot distribution center.

Deenvaughn Rowe, the acting manager of the Lamond Riggs and River Terrace post offices in Northeast DC, and letter carriers Kendra Brantley and Alicia Norman have been charged with bribery and distribution of a controlled substance, according to an indictment filed in federal court on Thursday.


Packages would arrive at the two post offices from California and Oregon, with Rowe monitoring the mail for their arrival. He would then tell the two letter carriers to deliver the pot-filled packages, which they would either fail to scan or scan with false information, to recipients on the street during their route in exchange for cash. Brantley and Norman would then give the cash to Rowe, the indictment said.

Between December and May, Rowe is believed to have deposited $31,485 in bribes into his bank account, while more than 100 kilograms of marijuana were doled out, authorities said.
While possession of a small amount of marijuana is legal in the nation’s capital, selling the drug is not.

Law enforcement began tracking the trio in March, when Brantley and Norman were first seen exchanging packages for cash with a person in a white Range Rover with California license plates, the indictment said. The exchanges continued over the next two months.

  1. Corruption runs deep in DC…even have the Postal stupidvisors thinking they deserve some extra $$$. And by the picture above, the friend looks like a up standing citizen!

    I bet they all got to keep they’re welfare benefits!

    And if the two female carriers gave the $$ to the male stupidvisor, isn’t that also like prostitution??

    Nope, not going to stereo type, just am not!

  2. Bribery will not be tolerated once I take office. Once I am elected, I will no longer accept “monetary gifts”, and I will cease with my e-mail shenanigans.

  3. Acting supervisor what a joke that woman should be on the dock unloading trucks wearing a pair of coveralls and steel toed workboots, not supervising human beings.

  4. That was pretty enterprising activity. This head dog needs a promotion to at lease
    Manager, or something to represent quick thinking on his own. It didn’t even sound
    like he had to call head quarters for any last minute help. Nothing like a guy with
    the drive to finish the last mile delivery. I wonder did his crew remember to get
    the scan. Hopeful he keep everyone in the loop. Remember the job is never completed without proper conformation. Well better luck next time!. At least it
    didn’t take any overtime, did it. Profits up, and overhead down. Great Job!.

  5. Oh darn – there goes another money making opportunity. Customer Connect on the next level. And management was working with craft, showing that we’re all one big happy family working together toward a common goal. Wait for tomorrow’s post where I will tell you I was being sarcastic.
