Former postal employee sentenced in armed robbery of U.S. Postal Service truck

A former United States Postal Service employee will spend several years in prison for an armed robbery of another USPS driver in Grand Island

United States Attorney Joe Kelly said Gary Fellows, 45, was sentenced Monday in federal court in Omaha to 25 years in prison.

In April, Fellows entered pleas of guilty to charges of Hobbs Act Robbery and Use of a Firearm in Furtherance of a Crime of Violence. After serving his sentence, Fellows will began a five-year term of supervised release.

Prosecutors said a postal employee was approached by a masked man brandishing a handgun at 9:30 p.m. on December 14, 2018, while at the United States Post Office Distribution Center in Grand Island.
