PHILADELPHIA — A former Philadelphia Water Department mailroom worker is heading to prison after pleading guilty to a million-dollar scam involving ink and toner cartridges.
Federal prosecutors say 63-year-old Calvin Duncan was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison. Duncan admitted in 2013 to using city funds to place more than $1.3 million in excess orders for ink and toner cartridges.
Prosecutors say from 2006 to 2012, Duncan sold the cartridges to an Arkansas print supply company for more than $545,000.
The owners of the supply company, Derek and Danita Willis, pleaded guilty in the case last year. Derek Wills was sentenced to three years in prison and his wife received a one-year sentence behind bars.
