U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of New York

ROCHESTER, N.Y.- U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Nathan Romar Arnold, 23, of Rochester, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr. to possession of United States Postal Service key, and theft of mail, which carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Katelyn M. Hartford, who is handling the case, stated that on October 1 and 2, 2023, Arnold and others stole mail matter from USPS mail receptacles located near the USPS Brighton Station Post Office on N. Winton Road, the Greece Post Office on Latta Road, and the Jefferson Road Post Office. The key had been stolen from a USPS letter carrier and thereafter used to open the mail receptacles and steal the mail matter, which Arnold intended to keep for his own use and profit.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, under the direction of Inspector in Charge Ketty Larco-Ward, Boston Division, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Sheriff Todd Baxter, and the Greece Police Department, under the direction of Chief Michael Wood.

Sentencing is scheduled for September 25, 2024, at 3:00 p.m. before Judge Geraci.
