Forty-one-year-old Warren Bradford of Upper Marlboro was convicted on Thursday. He will be sentenced on May 25.
According to evidence presented at the three-day trial, Bradford, a 15-year Postal Service employee, was a letter carrier in the Capitol Heights Post Office. In 2009, a resident saw a Postal worker taking several trays of mail from a postal vehicles and discarding them in a secluded location.
