WESLACO - The U.S. Postal Service spoke out after one of their own employees pleaded guilty to multiple charges in a bribery case.

Noe Olvera, 43, of Mission, pled guilty earlier this week for receiving money in exchange for addresses during the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office race in 2014. He was arrested last December.

USPS Office of Inspector General spokesperson Jeff Krafels said they referred to the Inspector General for an investigation as soon as the agency found out about the incident.

“The Postal Service does not tolerate this type of behavior, and the key to the public is that the overwhelming majority of postal service employees are honest, hardworking and do their job,” he said.

Krafels added all their postal employees receive training on ethics, as well as rules and regulations.
