ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage mail carrier has been sentenced to one year probation after being convicted of throwing mail in the trash.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 36-year-old Alfonso Pitpit pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction of mail. In addition to probation, he was fined $1,000.

Prosecutors say a witness saw Pitpit empty two trays of mail into garbage cans on his route in October. The witness notified the post office, and the mail was recovered and delivered.

Pitpit was sentenced Tuesday.
