BANGOR, Maine (AP) - The former deputy postmaster at the East Vassalboro Post Office has been sentenced to three months for stealing mail and embezzling postal money orders.

Twenty-nine-year-old Jason Stockmar, of Augusta, was sentenced on Thursday in federal court in Bangor.

Centralmaine.com reports (https://bit.ly/1BhHtS9 ) that he pleaded guilty in August.

Federal prosecutors say in February 2013 Stockmar took 20 blank postal service money orders from a safe in the East Vassalboro office, imprinted the money orders for almost $20,000 and ordered gold bars from a company. Stockmar ordered the bars in the name of a postal clerk in the North Vassalboro Post Office without her knowledge.

Authorities say he also stole cash, checks and gift cards from mail in amounts from $50 to $600.
