South Portland postal worker allegedly assisted drug trafficking ring

A South Portland mail carrier has been charged with helping a drug trafficking ring use the postal service to ship drugs.

The mail carrier, Katie Montgomery, allegedly offered advice to FireBunny-USA, which authorities say shipped over ten-thousand packages of illegal drugs between 2019 and 2022. Montgomery told a court last February she's innocent of the charges.

If she is convicted, Montgomery could face up to 25 years in prison.
