BECKLEY (AP) — A former mail carrier will spend three years on probation for making drug deals while on the job.
Jack Edwin McCoy also must perform hours of community service and spend four months on home confinement.
U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin announced McCoy’s sentence on Wednesday in a news release.
The 30-year-old White Sulphur Springs resident had pleaded guilty in May to using a telephone in or near Lewisburg to set up a drug transaction on Feb. 20. Goodwin says McCoy then distributed a suboxone strip in Ronceverte to a person who was working with authorities.
McCoy was working his shift as a mail carrier when the drug activity occurred.
Goodwin says McCoy admitted to selling suboxone strips bout 100 times while he was working.
