Mail Carrier Sentenced For Stealing Mail

WICHITA, KAN. - A Derby man was sentenced Wednesday to 12 months and a day for stealing mail while he worked as a mail carrier, U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.


Gary W. Yenzer, 34, Derby, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of theft of U.S. mail. In his plea, he admitted that in August and September 2016 while working as a mail carrier in rural Sedgwick County he stole mail. Investigators learned Yenzer looked for birthday and anniversary cards so he could remove cash and gift cards. He kept the cash and sold some of the gift cards for cash, but he did not use the gift cards for fear of them bring traced to him.


Beall commended the U.S. Postal Service-Office of Inspector General and Assistant U.S. Attorney Brent Anderson for their work on the case.
