A South Los Angeles man pleaded guilty Monday to robbing postal trucks at gunpoint, stealing nearly $240,000 in heists he executed with his half-brother, a former U.S. Postal Service employee, according to federal prosecutors.
Myron Crosby, a resident of the South L.A. neighborhood of Athens, admitted in a plea agreement to taking part in two robberies last year — one in February and another in March, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
He pleaded guilty to one felony count of robbery of U.S. property and faces up to 25 years in federal prison when he is expected to be sentenced on Nov. 25.
Crosby, 28, conspired with other robbers to target trucks leaving two Los Angeles-area postal offices where his half brother, William Crosby IV, had previously worked.
As a former USPS supervisor, William Crosby knew when the agency’s trucks would be transporting cash from sales of money orders and USPS merchandise, federal prosecutors said.
