Bakersfield man charged with postal theft

FRESNO — A federal grand jury returned an eight-count indictment today against Jason Leroy Geiser, 36, of Bakersfield, charging him with conspiracy to possess stolen U.S. mail and to unlawfully possess 15 or more unauthorized access devices (credit or debit cards), and other related charges, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.

According to court documents, between Oct. 1, 2016, and March 2, 2017, Geiser conspired with others to steal mail and to use information and access devices obtained from the stolen mail for their own monetary benefit.

This case is the product of an investigation by the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Bakersfield Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Brian K. Delaney is prosecuting the case.

If convicted, Geiser faces a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Any sentence, however, would be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables. The charges are only allegations; the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
