Feds: Conn. postal worker intercepted drug package

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A U.S. Postal Service worker has been indicted on charges that he intercepted a package containing cocaine and took it to his home.

Thirty-seven-year-old Edward Hogan was arrested in November as part of an investigation into the use of mail to send drugs from Puerto Rico to the Waterbury area.

Federal prosecutors say Hogan was a customer service supervisor at the main Waterbury post office when he allegedly intercepted the package on Nov. 9. He has been free on $150,000 bond since his arrest.

Authorities say the federal grand jury in Hartford returned the indictment Wednesday on the charge of embezzlement of mail by a postal service employee.

A number listed for Hogan was not in service.
