One of the postal supervisors pleaded guilty today.
“Mancer Holmes pleaded guilty to conspiracy Thursday, acknowledging he took bribes to send mail vehicles to a Detroit repair garage. Assistant U.S. Attorney David Gardey says two or three additional guilty pleas are expected — and possibly all five men.
The government says Metro Diesel paid more than $100,000 in bribes and provided a prostitute to ensure it would work on trucks in Detroit and Akron, Ohio. The company received millions from the Postal Service.
Holmes was a lead automotive technician in Allen Park. He’s accused of accepting more than $6,000. No one from Metro Diesel has been charged. The U.S. attorney’s office won’t explain why.”
