Postman, brother admit trafficking cocaine

WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — A Postman and his brother have pleaded guilty to drug charges in Waterbury.

38-year-old Edward Hogan and 34-year-old Justin Hogan both of Waterbury pleaded guilty to transporting narcotics from Puerto Rico to Connecticut.

Their arrest comes following a federal investigation.

Court documents say Edward Hogan worked for the U.S. Postal Service and used that job to remove packages containing cocaine and marijuana from the mail stream.

He and his brother then distributed those drugs to buyers for profit.  They face a maximum term of imprisonment of 25 years when they’re sentenced.
