Cargo handler sentenced in American Samoa mail theft case

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

The fourth and final air cargo ramp worker who admitted stealing U.S. mail parcels bound for American Samoa must spend two months in jail and perform 200 hours of community service.

The federal sentence handed down this morning for Louis Felesi, 23, is similar to penalties his fellow former Pacific Air Cargo workers received last week.

Stanford Salavea, 20, will have to spend four months in jail and perform 300 hours of community service; Jonathan Tabonair, 34, four months in jail and 200 hours of community service; and Maunaloa Aitaoto, 20, two months in jail and 300 hours of community service.

In addition, all four are jointly responsible for paying $10,489 in restitution.

They admitted stealing hundreds of mail parcels from November 2010 to Feb. 24, when they were arrested in a sting operation.

When investigators went to Felesi’s home, they recovered a missing flat screen television and desktop computer.
