    Maine UPS driver pleads guilty to stealing veterans’ pills - Press Herald

    A United Parcel Service delivery truck driver from Maine who stole packages of pills intended for patients who are military veterans pleaded guilty Monday to a federal charge of theft from interstate shipments.

    Jeffrey P. Wheeler Jr., 31, of Sebago appeared in U.S. District Court in Portland before Judge Jon Levy and entered his plea after waiving his right to have his case presented to a grand jury for indictment.

    Between Dec. 17, 2013, and Feb. 5, 2014, Wheeler stole eight packages that the Department of Veterans Affairs medical facility in Togus had shipped via UPS to veterans throughout the region.
