WORCESTER – A former U.S. Postal Service supervisor at the Worcester Main Post Office on East Central Street faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to stealing packages containing cocaine on at least eight occasions.
Kevin Dombroski, 43, of Worcester, pleaded guilty on Aug. 30, 2022 in federal court in Worcester to one count of theft of mail by an employee of the USPS.
Dombroski was initially charged by criminal complaint on Feb. 9, 2022 and subsequently charged on June 30, 2022.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Dombroski stole packages that had been mailed from Puerto Rico to addresses in Worcester he believed would contain cocaine. Dombroski removed the packages from the post office’s main processing area and took them into a private office where he would open the parcel and remove the drugs before returning the package back to the floor for delivery.
Dombroski then sold the drugs to an acquaintance for $7,500 for each package.
Dombroski also faces up to three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 19, 2023.
