Boston (AP) — A postal worker who tracks, steals, opens, and stores guilty drugs on Friday after suspected drug-containing mail.

In a statement, Boston’s US federal prosecutor’s office said Whitman’s Sean Heron, 44, had pleaded guilty to the plot of possessing cocaine with the intention of distributing and stealing mail by postal workers.

According to prosecutors, Heron uses the post office’s own database to track parcels, preferential mail from Puerto Rico and the West Coast, and parcels flagged by law enforcement as possible containing illegal drugs. And removed them from the mail stream.

Then he took the parcel to his office and stole the medicine he found there.

Heron has been working at the post office in Canton and Fall River since 2005.

He faces up to 25 years in prison in a sentence scheduled for February 17.
