BANGOR, Maine — A former postal worker pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Bangor to stealing mail and postal money orders while on the job, U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty announced in a press release sent Monday.

Jason Stockmar, 28, of Augusta worked at a post office in East Vassalboro, where he took cash, checks and gift cards from the mail, Delahanty said. He added that Stockmar also removed 20 blank postal money orders from the post office’s safe.

Stockmar was hired by the U.S. Postal Service in 2011, according to court documents.

The incidents occurred between Dec. 1, 2012, and April 21, 2013.

Stockmar could serve up to five years in prison and face up to a $250,000 fine, according to Delahanty.
