Posted: Updated:

HAZELWOOD, Mo. ( - Three former U.S. Postal Service employees have pleaded guilty to stealing mail believed to contain clothing, marijuana, and other items, according to officials.

Court documents state Edward Lewis, 23, Sean West, 22, and Korey Howard, 23, searched for mail at a distribution center in Hazelwood and redirected those items to their personal addresses.

The diverted mail reportedly contained marijuana, clothing, computer equipment, pottery, and miscellaneous personal belongings.

Howard entered his plea Wednesday, while West and Lewis pleaded guilty earlier in December.

All three men admitted to conspiracy, obstruction of correspondence and theft or receipt of stolen mail. They are scheduled for sentencing in March 2016.

A fourth defendant, Quentin Cook, 23, pleaded not guilty and will face trail early next year.
