Ex-postal worker gets two years in theft of credit card info

A man who stole debit and credit cards from the mail while he was an employee at the U.S. Postal Service has been sentenced to two years in federal prison.

From May to July 2011, Jerome Harvey, 34, stole credit cards, debit cards, and personal identification information as a temporary mail sorter for the Postal Service, the U.S. attorney for the district of Nevada said in a Tuesday release.

Harvey, of Las Vegas, pleaded guilty in November to one count of aggravated identity theft and, in addition to prison time, was hit with a $5,951 fine and a year of supervised release.

Harvey is allowed to remain free until June 7 when he’s expected to report to prison.
