Ex-USPS Supervisor Pleads Guilty to Robbing Mail Trucks in L.A.

by Contributing Editor

A former U.S. Postal Service supervisor pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges stemming from the armed robberies of Postal Service trucks in Los Angeles.

William Crosby, 32, of Inglewood pleaded guilty in Los Angeles federal court to robbery of United States property and use of a gun in a crime of violence. He faces no less than a dozen years behind bars at sentencing on Oct. 28, according to his plea agreement.

Crosby — who worked at both the Dockweiler and Wagner post office branches — admitted participating in the armed robbery of a USPS truck driver on March 1, 2018, after the vehicle was forced to stop on a Harbor (110) Freeway off-ramp. He also admitted involvement in the Feb. 1, 2018, armed robbery of a Postal Service driver, as well as the burglary of a Postal Service truck on Aug. 1, 2017. Those crimes caused cash losses of about $240,000, according to court documents.

As a former supervisor, William Crosby knew when the Postal Service transported cash generated from the sale of money orders and USPS merchandise — information that is not known to all Postal Service employees, according to prosecutors.

Crosby and his 28-year-old half brother, Myron, were named in an eight-count indictment unsealed in November. Myron Crosby faces trial in September.
