Former postal worker pleads guilty to dumping store ads

Jeffrey Wojcik, 36, a former U.S. postal worker from Cheektowaga, pleaded guilty Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge H. Kenneth Schroeder, Jr., to obstruction of the mails.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth R. Moellering said Wojcik admitted dumping a bundle of mail advertisements for the Bed, Bath & Beyond chain of stores, failing to realize that what she called “a concerned citizen” saw him dump the advertisements and reported it to the U.S. Postal Service.

All that mail was recovered and delivered to all its intended recipients, she said. Wojcik faces a possible prison term of up to six months and a fine of up to $5,000 when he is sentenced by Judge Schroeder at 10 a.m. Aug. 13.
