BEAUMONT, Texas - A 30-year-old Lufkin, Texas man has been sentenced to federal prison for robbing a post office in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales. 

Keith DeWayne Bailey pleaded guilty on June 19, 2013, to post office robbery and was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison today by U.S. District Judge Ron Clark. 

According to information presented in court, on Oct. 1, 2012, Bailey entered the United States Post Office in Woodville, Texas and handed a note to a postal employee indicating he had a concealed weapon, he was robbing the post office, and demanding the money in the register.  The postal employee went to the back of the post office and gave the note to her supervisor.  When the postal employee returned to the front of the post office, Bailey had already left the building.  The postal employee called 911 and gave a detailed description of the suspect.  Less than 10 minutes later, a law enforcement officer responding to the scene observed a suspect matching the description a few blocks from the post office.  Bailey was arrested without incident and admitted to attempting to rob the post office.

A federal grand jury returned an indictment on Oct. 3, 2012 charging Bailey with federal violations. 

This case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Woodville Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph R. Batte.
