NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Connecticut supervisor for the U.S. Postal Service and his brother have pleaded guilty to mail theft and trafficking in narcotics.

Edward Hogan and his brother, Justin Hogan, both of Waterbury, pleaded guilty Thursday.

Authorities say the 38-year-old Edward Hogan used his Postal Service job in Waterbury to remove parcels with cocaine and marijuana and distributed the drugs for profit.

Hogan was arrested in November in an investigation into the use of mail to send drugs from Puerto Rico to the Waterbury area.

The brothers pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine. Edward Hogan pleaded guilty to embezzlement of mail by a postal worker and the 34-year-old Justin Hogan pleaded guilty to receiving stolen mail.

They face up to 25 years in prison.
