Former Mail Carrier Made Over 100 Drug Deals While on Duty
McCoy pled guilty in May of 2014, admitting that on February 20, 2014, he used a telephone to tell a confidential informant working with law enforcement (CI) where to meet him to buy buprenorphine, a controlled substance found in the medication Suboxone. After the telephone conversation, the CI met McCoy in Ronceverte, West Virginia where McCoy sold the CI a Suboxone strip. At the time of the transaction, McCoy was working a shift as a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service. McCoy admitted that he had sold about 270 suboxone strips, and that he had sold about 100 times while on duty as a mail carrier. McCoy is no longer employed by the Postal Service.
The case was investigated by the Greenbrier Valley Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force and the United States Postal Service Office of Inspector General. The prosecution was handled by Assistant United States Attorney John File, and was pursued under the Greenbrier County Heroin and Pill Initiative, which is part of an ongoing effort by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, to aggressively pursue and shut down heroin and illegal prescription medication trafficking in communities across the Southern District.
