Man sentenced in Alaska mail theft case

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – Federal prosecutors say a former supervisor with an Alaska commuter airline has been sentenced to six months in a halfway house for stealing mail, including computers that were destined for rural schools.

Breadoflife “Presley” Faiupu also was sentenced Friday to five years of probation in connection with thefts between March 2015 and April 2017.

Prosecutors say the 37-year-old Anchorage man previously pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy and mail theft.

A co-defendant, Congress Lepou, is scheduled to be sentenced in March.

Prosecutors say the two men used a company truck to move stolen items from the postal center to private vehicles in a company parking lot.

According to prosecutors, four other Ravn workers helped the men find buyers, with the six splitting the proceeds.
