Postman Foster Goes to Jail

Last March, Marvin Foster was arrested for stealing over a half million dollars worth of postage stamps from the Elkridge branch of the US Postal service. It was an inside job. Marvin was an employee at the time. Now he’s a former employee.

Yesterday Mr. Foster entered into a plea agreement that will make him a guest of the federal prison system for thirty months. He also now owes the government $300,000 in restitution that he will presumably pay in cash instead of stamps.
