BECKLEY - A former U.S. postal service worker was sentenced in federal court in Beckley for using a telephone to facilitate the sale of illegal drugs.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said Jack Edwin McCoy, 30, of White Sulphur Springs will have three years of probation, including four months of home confinement and 150 hours of community service.

McCoy had pleaded guilty in May to calling a confidential informant working with law enforcement to telling him where to meet him to buy a controlled substance called buprenorphine. They met for the drug deal and McCoy admitted to selling the drugs and to selling these drugs about 100 times while on duty as a mail carrier.
