Postal Supervisor sentenced to prison for importing anabolic steroids by mail

4/6/17 BOSTON – An employee of the United States Postal Service (USPS) was sentenced today on one count of importing a controlled substance.


John A. Psehoyas, 54, of Methuen, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Senior Judge Douglas P. Woodlock to six months in prison, to be followed by two years of supervised release and 200 hours of community service to be completed during supervised release. On Jan. 4, 2017, Psehoyas pleaded guilty to importation of a controlled substance.

Psehoyas was a customer service supervisor at the Lynnfield, Mass. Post Office. From August 2014 to March 2016, Psehoyas purchased anabolic steroids, a controlled substance, from online sources and had them shipped to him from China, Poland, Turkey and Romania. The parcels were addressed to multiple addressees at various locations to avoid suspicion. Psehoyas retrieved the parcels by tracking them with a USPS tracking system.

Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb and Eileen Neff, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Postal Service, Office of Inspector General, Boston Field Office, made the announcement today. Eugenia M. Carris of Weinreb’s Public Corruption Unit prosecuted the case.

  1. If he is be truly punished, demote him to a CCA! He will be too busy with his scanner and many loads of mail to deal in drugs any more.

  2. Here we go again. Craft and management alike doing truly stupid shit, losing their jobs, if felonies are involved, and ruining their lives in the process. Now, normal “work” abuses usually result in reassignment as far as management is concerned, but a floor level supervisor, which is what this person was minus the featherbedding title management loves to bestow upon themselves. It’s laughable to consider management to be a “customer service supervisor” when the very structure of the business means they seldom ever meet customers except for answering the phone or an occasional complaint at the window.
    Not that supervisors don’t have real jobs – theirs is usually everything piled upon them by higher ups outside their facilities who dump their workload on the ones at the bottom of the ladder. But anything with “customer service” attached to it belongs only to window clerks, rural and city carriers. We’re the public face of the USPS and I felt that way my whole career before recently retiring. I guess I still give a damn because I have friends who still work there, depend on pensions and annuities/benefits like I do, and some supervisors and managers too who managed to be good people in a business where being in management was too stressful and demanding if you weren’t high up the ladder. I had no interest in being in management – the extra money wasn’t worth the maltreatment supervisors and local PM’s got from District and Area.
    So, it’s a demonstration that being stupid isn’t relegated strictly to one craft or management position. A carrier dumps mail, gets busted by the GPS on his scanner. How this guy was nailed I would guess was also by leaving electronic footprints. When will these types realize how much can be revealed thanks to scanners? It’s the same thing as having a supervisor if you’re in craft or a higher level manager over your shoulder all day monitoring your every move. You are not going to slip this kind of behavior past anybody.
    What else bothers me is how selfish this activity is. I have no doubt 99% of those postal employees who break the laws, get arrested and removed have families to support. It’s the same pathetic situation as adults who are hooked on meth or other drugs, alcoholics or other type of skank activity. That person thinks only in the short term of themselves, giving little if any consideration to the consequences of their actions and the impacts it has on their families.
    Losing your pension, having a criminal record, being unemployed because of it or not able to do anything but low paying manual work because companies don’t like hiring ex-cons, and who would, and facing prison time – is it worth the risk you’re taking? Are you going to be proud of yourself when you have to explain or lie to your kids because you’re an infantile moron? How does a costly divorce sound to you?
    The economy today and job situation is making it a lot harder to land good blue collar jobs, and the USPS pays a lot better than tons of employers who demand college degrees. Plus, the retirement, if you’re smart enough to do so, can be sweet if you take advantage of the Thrift Savings Plan, one of the very few safe investments that actually earn a decent percentage, especially when it starts to compound. So be a meth addict, and I know of some in the USPS or were – be a drunk – drug dealer or thief if you’re hell bent on doing so, but do the rest of the planet a favor: stop breeding. You are no doubt setting horrible examples to further generations who will probably grow up to be just like you.
