Edward Flores 39 A veteran mailman distributed methamphetamine while driving along his Texas route in a U.S. Postal Service vehicle, investigators charge.

Edward Flores, 39, is facing felony narcotics charges following a 10-month investigation by state investigators and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Flores, seen at right, is free on $10,000 bond.

According to cops, Flores has worked for the postal service for more than 20 years. His wife is the postmaster in Lorena, a city outside Waco where the couple lives.

During surveillance operations, investigators watched as Flores, wearing his mailman’s uniform, delivered methamphetamine. The probe of Flores–who worked from a Waco post office–was prompted by tips to law enforcement that narcotics was being sold from his residence, as well as from a U.S. Postal Service vehicle being driven by a uniformed worker.

During a raid last week at Flores’s home, cops seized methamphetamine worth $17,000.
