Ex-Rogersville Postman Charged with Stealing Mail, Prescriptions

A former Rogersville postman has been sentenced to probation after admitting to opening mail and stealing prescriptions.

38-year old Shawn Ice of Midway had faced up to six months in prison.

Back in December of 2016, the VA notified the Rogersville post office that a number of prescription packages were not getting to their intended recipient.

After denying stealing the packages on three accounts, Ice admitted to taking the pills to feed an opioid addiction.
