Federal court documents say a tip in January about drug distribution by the carrier while on his route led them to carrier Dat Ho, who delivered mail in the Bivins neighborhood.

They also say more investigation led to marijuana buys from Georga Delcruz and drug seizures from Gabriel Chavez, both of whom got the drugs from Ho.

Chavez said the marijuana was coming from northern California.

Investigators said Ho also mailed a child’s backpack in June to the same area of California with about $7,000 hidden inside it.
