David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Korey Streater, 26, of New Haven, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford to 120 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for robbery.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on January 22, 2011, Streater brandished a fake handgun and robbed the United States Postal Service Contract Station E-Z Mail & More LLC, located at 920 Foxon Road in East Haven, of approximately $1,413 and several U.S. mail items.
On January 25, 2011, law enforcement officers executed a state search warrant at the Streater’s residence and recovered some of the stolen mail items as well as the weapon he brandished during the robbery.
On June 28, 2012, Streater pleaded guilty to one count of robbery of the mail, money, or other property of the United States.
Streater has been in state custody since January 28, 2011. He awaits sentencing in state court for committing seven robberies of convenience stores and liquor stores in the greater New Haven area.
Judge Bryant imposed the 10-year federal sentence to run concurrently with Streater’s state sentence.
This case was investigated by the United States Postal Inspection Service with the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New Haven Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Marc H. Silverman, S. Dave Vatti and Calvin Kurimai.
