Postal Manager, Supervisor, Employee indicted for stealing, selling drugs from packages

Three U.S. Postal employees and fourth man indicted for stealing packages containing marijuana and selling the drugs

Three U.S. Postal employees in Akron and a fourth man were indicted for a conspiracy in which they stole packages containing marijuana from the U.S. mail and then sold the drugs, said David A. Sierleja, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Named in the three-count indictment are: Rabih Kairouz, 29, of Akron; Anton D. Easter, Jr., 26, of Akron; Scott Gay, Jr., 33, of Canton, and Corey Turnbull, 26, of Ravenna.

Kairouz, Gay and Turnbull worked for the U.S. Postal Service. Kairouz and Turnbull worked as a supervisor at the Five Points station in Akron while Gary was a manager at the North Hill station, according to court documents.

Together, intercepted suspected drug parcels at U.S. Post Offices in Akron, opened the parcels, removed marijuana contained inside, sold the marijuana to Easter and shared the profits. This took place between February and May 2017, according to the indictment.

Kairouz also had a kilogram of methamphetamine that he stole from the mail, according to the indictment.

If convicted, a defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violations. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.


The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Akron Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Henry F. DeBaggis and Teresa L. Riley.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

  1. Remember, you always get what you pay for!!

    Keep hiring the un-hireables….Postal Mgt. needs a complete revamping!!

  2. OK…Just check the priority packages coming from Colorado that smell like skunk…steal the pot and deal it on the black market….yeah, that’s the ticket!

    Where does the Postal Circus find these clowns!!!!

  3. that’s what I call team work, that’s what the poster at our station says, now they want to punish them, wwwwwwhhhhhhyyyyyy!

  4. Let’s see here… They’re all probably so – called disabled veterans and will get off Scott – free… I work with a newly hired Mha in Lancaster, Pa and he’s 30 % disabled. I told him thank you for your service and he told me he was always state side for his 2 years of service.. I asked him how did he get hurt. He told me he sliced his leg cutting grass. I said you gotta be kidding me. You receive 450 a month for life because you didn’t know how to operate a lawn mower. Sounds like the VA doctors are quick to diagnose anyone. This system needs to be changed for COMBAT VETERANS ONLY!! They need all the available monies for their treatments

    • sounds like you washed out of the service, 90% or more of veterans don’t see combat SFB, you are judging one veteran and putting all veterans in the pot, again most veterans don’t see combat. again it sounds like you washed out of the military or never, never, never have you been in a uniform cry baby, don’t insult the rest of the veterans SFB.

      • I know you are a very fair person . May families have lost love ones
        serving this country but were not in a so called war zone when they
        paid the ultimate price. What about the ones so damaged that no one
        could heal their wounds, or the homeless that are forgotten to sleep
        in our streets. If anyone should consider the people as a whole it is
        the Police, or the Mailman. These two jobs deal with everyone on a daily basis. To insult these great people is a low blow!.
