Petersburg mail carrier sentenced for dumping thousands of pieces of mail

PETERSBURG, Va. — A former Petersburg mail carrier was sentenced Thursday to 10 weekends in jail and 18 months’ probation in connection to dumping thousands of pieces of mail.

In February, Ryan L. Hooker, 36, was sentenced to six months of probation after his personal vehicle was repossessed with several hundreds of pieces of mail inside. The mail was discovered inside of the repossessed vehicle that ended up in Covington, Virginia.

Some of that mail included hundreds of pieces of first class mail, advertisement mail, and Social Security checks of Petersburg residents, according to the Inspector General.
