Mail thief who sold items on eBay gets 4 months in jail

A former leasing company executive who stole thousands of items from the mail, including a Tom Brady rookie card, and sold them on eBay has been sentenced Tuesday to 120 days in the Kane County Jail. Mark Hoggay, 51, of Geneva Township, who pleaded guilty to felony theft, was also sentenced to 4 years' probation.

Hoggay worked as vice president of human resources for a Bolingbrook leasing company that contracted with the Postal Service to store extra bins and lockers during periods of heavy mailing, said Assistant State's Atty. Justin Fitzsimmons. Hoggay, who had access to the secure room, picked items he liked and took them home in duffels, prosecutors said.
