That includes five pairs of “high-valued sneakers” totaling about $1,949, nine Apple iPhones valued at about $6,049 and one $800 Samsung Galaxy phone, according to his indictment filed Thursday. Williams is also charged with embezzling up to $1,000 from the postal service itself between February and March.
Williams faces counts of theft of mail by a postal employee and misappropriation of postal funds.
