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.
