Three men from Northeast Ohio, including two former U.S. Postal Service employees, were sentenced to prison for their roles in the armed robbery of a postal carrier in which they were trying to steal packages containing marijuana. Cortez Anderson, 29, of Oakwood Village, was sentenced to more than nine years in prison. Jabar Hogan, 34, of Cleveland, and Roy Malone, 34, of Bedford Heights, were both sentenced to nearly two years in prison. A juvenile who was also involved in the robbery was sentenced to three years in a juvenile detention facility.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Elliot Morrison and Scott Zarzycki following an investigation by the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
