Postman Admits Delivering Cocaine

August 13, 1989|Associated Press

BALTIMORE — A letter carrier has pleaded guilty to drug charges after admitting that he took telephone orders at the post office and delivered cocaine to some customers along his route.

Isaiah Millings, 33, pleaded guilty last week to six drug-related counts in exchange for a two-year prison sentence.

Postal inspectors and police secretly filmed Millings as he sold cocaine while delivering mail and as he transported the drug on other occasions using his official Postal Service vehicle.

Police and post inspectors also taped Millings taking cocaine orders over the telephone at the post office.

Millings' supplier, Antonio F. Brown, 49, also pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Brown, a native of Panama who entered the United States illegally, has a long criminal record and was wanted by police in South Carolina for escape.
