PITTSBURGH, PA – Two former residents of DuBois, Pennsylvania, have been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of conspiracy and mail theft, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The two-count Indictment, returned on Feb. 19, names David E. Moore Jr., 26, and Joshua J. Frantz, 25, as defendants.

According to the Indictment, from February through March of 2016, Moore and Frantz stole mail from mail receptacles at an apartment complex in the DuBois area.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of $500,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Rebecca L. Silinski is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The United States Postal Inspection Service and the DuBois Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
