Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Jason K. Stockmar, 29, of Augusta, Maine, was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock Jr. to three months  in prison and one year of supervised release for stealing mail and postal money orders while employed by the United States Postal Service (USPS).  He was also ordered to pay $3,160 in restitution. Stockmar pleaded guilty on August 18, 2014.

According to court records, Stockmar was hired by USPS in 2011.  He was the officer in charge of the East Vassalboro, Maine Post Office between about December 1, 2012, and April 21, 2013, when he stole about 25 to 30 pieces of customer mail containing cash, checks and gift cards.  He also took 20 blank postal money orders from a post office safe and attempted to purchase gold with them.

The case was investigated by the USPS Office of the Inspector General and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
