Former postal worker pleads guilty to stealing 12 iPhones

A Roxbury postal worker pleaded guilty today in US District Court to charges that he stole 12 iPhones from the mail and used a false name and birthdate on his job application, according to a statement by the US attorney’s office.

Mark Dozier, 56, is to return to court for sentencing May 28. He could face up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release, and $250,000 for each count, the statement said.

Dozier was discovered stealing iPhones from a mail sorting machine in 2012. He confessed to stealing 12 over the course of several weeks and reselling them at a local barbershop during his indictment, the statement said.
