A Nashville man accused of bribing a postal employee was sentenced Monday.  

28-year-old Mark Shankle was sentenced to 15 months in prison for paying a bribe to a public official, according to officials.  

Court documents said that in December 2017, Shankle offered to pay a postal employee $300 to hold a shipment of steroids for him and deliver the package to him once it arrived at the post office.  

According to a release, after arranging to have the package shipped under a false name, Shankle paid the employee $100. The employee reported the incident to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.  

In December, agents identified the package and obtained a search warrant for it, according to officials. Agents said the package contained approximately two pounds of marijuana.  

Police said a controlled delivery of the package was arranged and Shankle was arrested after picking it up at the rear of the Ashland City Post Office.  

According to a release, Shankle was on supervised release at the time of his arrest after being convicted in 2011 of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
