UPS Clerk Pleads Guilty To Stealing Drugs

 A former parcel delivery service worker in central Illinois has pleaded guilty to stealing drugs headed to military veterans.

Sean Locke of Mackinaw admitted that he stole drugs including methadone, oxycodone and fentanyl patches while working as a United Parcel Service clerk in East Peoria.

The medications were being mailed to Department of Veterans Affairs patients.

UPS and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency launched the investigation that led to Locke's arrest after several VA patients reported that their medication wasn't arriving.

U.S. attorney's office spokeswoman Sharon Paul says most of the stolen drugs have been recovered.
