Vermont — A former US postal worker accused of stealing prescription drugs from packages has been sentenced to one year of probation and ordered to perform community service work.

Federal prosecutors say 62-year-old Robert Mackenzie, of Fletcher, Vermont, was sentenced in US District Court in Burlington on Wednesday. He had pleaded guilty to one count of possession of oxycodone.

His public defender did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
