CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A former mail carrier faces up to four years in prison after admitting on-the-job drug activity.

Jack Edwin McCoy pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Charleston to using a communication facility to facilitate a felony drug offense.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says the 30-year-old White Sulphur Springs resident admitted using a telephone in or near Lewisburg to set up a drug transaction on Feb. 20. McCoy then distributed a suboxone strip in Ronceverte to a person who was cooperating with authorities.

McCoy was working his shift as a mail carrier when the drug activities occurred.

Goodwin says McCoy is no longer employed by the U.S. Postal Service.

McCoy is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 28.
