Ex-postal worker pleads guilty in L.A.-area mail truck thefts

A former U.S. Postal Service worker has pleaded guilty to helping rob Los Angeles-area mail trucks of nearly $240,000.

William Crosby of Inglewood entered pleas Wednesday to federal charges.

Prosecutors say Crosby arranged for his half brother and others to rob two postal trucks at gunpoint and steal a container of cash from a third in 2017 and 2018.

Under a plea agreement, Crosby said he used his job as a supervisor to identify trucks that were carrying cash from the sale of money orders and Postal Service merchandise. Crosby is now facing a possible life sentence.
