Gloucester mailman accused of stealing debit card and pin, then spending $4,000


With this arrest, Chroek becomes Gloucester’s third mail carrier to face criminal charges in the past five years.

Charges against one mail carrier, accused of selling Oxycontin along his postal route in 2010, were dismissed when he completed a drug rehabilitation program. That man, Stephen Hale, paid restitution for $10 that he had allegedly stolen from an envelope he was supposed to deliver, bringing the dismissal of a larceny charge.

Gloucester mail carrier Joseph Sauve pleaded guilty in 2011 to a charge of distributing obscene material after he snapped photos of his genitals with a woman’s phone while working his route in 2010.
