TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Tulsa man and three U.S. Postal Service carriers have been charged with participating in a methamphetamine drug conspiracy, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

A federal grand jury in Tulsa indicted Kamau Jahi Williams, 42; Erick Scott, 49; Christine Conner, 54, all of Tulsa; and Shawn Boike, 46, of Skiatook, with drug conspiracy, acting U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson said in a statement. The defendants made initial federal court appearances Tuesday.

Prosecutors allege that Williams orchestrated the conspiracy with the other three, all postal workers at the Apache Street Post Office in Tulsa. Williams’ drug supplier in California would mail shipments of meth to an abandoned Tulsa address, and the postal workers would mark the packages as delivered and then give them to Williams, prosecutors allege.

Federal court records don’t list the name of Williams’ attorney. Messages left with attorneys for Scott, Conner and Boike weren’t immediately returned.
