Federal prosecutors say Gresham was a mail carrier based at a postal facility in Newark. From October 2014 through September 2017, he accepted bribes from two people who were getting parcels containing illegal drugs through the mail.

Gresham intercepted the packages while on duty and personally delivered them to various locations in Newark. He was paid between $50 and $200 for each delivery and received $14,900 overall.
