North Pole Man Indicted On Postal Embezzlement Charges

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Alaska

Anchorage, Alaska - U.S. Attorney Karen L. Loeffler announced that the federal Grand Jury has indicted a North Pole man on a charge of theft of mail for embezzling prescription drugs from the United States Mail.

James H. Dzimitrowicz, Jr., 47, of North Pole, was indicted for taking packages out of the mail while employed at the Fairbanks main post office as a mail clerk.  The packages are alleged to have contained prescription drugs being sent from pharmacies to patients in the Fairbanks area who had been prescribed those medications.  The Indictment alleges the embezzlement continued from 2011 to 2014. 

Dzimitrowicz is set to be arraigned on the charge on August 27, in the U. S. District Court in Fairbanks.  An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.   

Ms. Loeffler commends the U. S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General for the investigation of this case.
