An Oxnard man who treated himself to a Starbucks gift card, bought coffee and handed himself a check after breaking into the Mojave post office was sentenced to jail on Wednesday.
Ryan James Taylor, 34, has been sentenced to two years and three months, US attorney McGregor W. Scott said in a press release.
Quoting court documents, the U.S. prosecutor said Taylor broke into the Mojave post office and stole mail from the outbox on August 26, 2018. Then he stole a mail van.
The US Postal Inspection Service conducted the investigation. US assistant attorneys Vincente Tennerelli and Joseph Barton are pursuing the case.
