BOSTON – A Roxbury man was sentenced today for stealing iPhones from the mail and making false statements.

Mark Dozier, 58, was sentenced by Senior U.S. District Judge Mark L. Wolf to two years in prison, three years of supervised release and $595 in restitution. In March of this year, he pleaded guilty to theft of mail by an employee of the postal service and making false statements. Dozier has been in custody since his arrest in 2012.

While working as an employee at the U.S. Postal Service, Dozier was caught stealing iPhones from the mail sorting machine. He confessed to stealing 12 iPhones over the course of several weeks and reselling them at a local barbershop. Dozier also lied about his identity on his application to become a Postal worker, using his brother’s name and date of birth rather than his own.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Rafael Medina, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Postal Service, Office of the Inspector General, Northeast Area Office, made the announcement today. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Eugenia M. Carris of Ortiz's Public Corruption and Special Prosecutions Unit.
