ST. LOUIS (AP) - Three former employees of a U.S. Postal Service distribution center in suburban St. Louis have pleaded guilty to several charges involving a conspiracy to steal mail.

Prosecutors say Sean West, Korey Howard and Quentin Cook, who worked at the Hazelwood center, sent mail they saw at the center to themselves, postal employee Edward Lewis and others. The stolen mail included clothing, marijuana, electronics and personal effects.

Howard, of Florissant, pleaded guilty Wednesday. Lewis, of Hazelwood, and West, of Florissant, pleaded guilty earlier this month. They faced multiple charges including conspiracy, obstruction of correspondence and theft or receipt of stolen mail. They are scheduled for sentencing in March 2016.

Cook, of Florissant, is scheduled for trial early next year.
