HARRISBURG—The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Elieze Guilamo, age 20, of York, Pennsylvania, was sentenced today to 15 months’ imprisonment by United States District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner for conspiring to steal government property.

According to Acting United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, Guilamo previously pleaded guilty to conspiring with other individuals to purchase $105,875 worth of postage stamps from post offices in the Middle District of Pennsylvania and elsewhere.  Guilamo admitted that to purchase the stamps, he used personal checks, knowing that the funds in his bank account were insufficient to cover the cost of the stamps.  As part of his plea agreement, Guilamo agreed to pay restitution to the U.S. Postal Service in the amount of $105,875, which represents the value of the postage stamps that Guilamo and his coconspirators unlawfully obtained.

Guilamo’s codefendants, Steven Williams and Arthur Gibson, were previously sentenced to 30 months’ imprisonment and 18 months’ imprisonment, respectively.

The case was investigated by the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Northeastern Regional Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Carlo D. Marchioli prosecuted the case.
