Florida Mailman Caught Snorting Cocaine, Delivering Drugs Along Route
Juan Fonseca may be the worst mailman in the world. He's charged with snorting cocaine while on the job, driving his truck with his feet, stealing money out of Christmas cards, swiping Netflix rentals, and, oh yeah, delivering drugs along his route.
The Kissimmee, Florida, postal worker first raised suspicion by delivering large packages to otherwise empty homes along his route. An investigation was launched and two packages with more than twenty pounds of marijuana and another with five pounds of cocaine were found.
Police say the packages were sent from Puerto Rico to empty address specifically on Fonseca's route, and believe he was in on the scheme.
A hidden camera was also placed in his mail truck where he was caught steering the mail truck with his knees while snorting cocaine. This happened six times in one day. He was also caught swiping cash from holiday cards and returned Netflix rentals.
Fonseca was arrested along with an accomplice who is charged with picking up the deliveries. He could face time receiving packages in prison.
