Manhattan USPS Mailman Stole Checks and Was Freed and Pled Now Gets Year and a Day

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 28 – Christian Cebollero was arrested stealing checks from people's mail in the USPS Church Street Station in lower Manhattan. 

 On August 8, 2023 he was presented before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag court. 

 The US Attorney's Office agreed to release on $25,000 unsecured bond, with one co-signer and no contact with witnesses or victim, how ever identified.

There are more and more of these mail- and check-theft cases. But in this case, Cebollero is a mail handler - one whose duties do not - or did not - include sorting individual pieces of mail.

  He was observed "sorting through mail, removing certain mailings, some of which were letter sized window envelopes of the type commonly used to transmit business checks," and putting them in his backpack.

On January 9 Cebollero waived indictment and pled guilty to an Information, before the assigned District Judge George B. Daniels.

On May 23 the US Attorney's Office wrote in to request at least 48 months, sentencing set for May 28.

On May 28, Cebollero was sentenced to a year and a day, allowing for "good time" credit.

Now it is US v. Cebollero, 24-cr-14 (Daniels)
