UPI, November 21, 2014

LORENA, Texas, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- A Texas mail carrier is facing felony charges on allegations he sold meth out of his U.S. Postal Service truck while on duty.

Authorities said Edward Flores, 39, a 20-year veteran of the Postal Service and husband of the postmaster in Lorena, Texas, was found by state investigators and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to be dealing methamphetamine out of his home and out of his Postal Service truck while delivering mail in nearby Waco.

Police said they seized $17,000 worth of meth from Flores' home during a raid last week.

Flores was charged with possession of a controlled substance over 4 ounces, but under 200 ounces, in a drug-free zone. McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said Flores' home in Lorena is located near both Lorena Middle School and Lorena Elementary School.
