Reward for information on mail carrier robbery

St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - The United States Postal Inspection Service is offering up to a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who robbed a St. Louis mail carrier earlier this month.

The robbery occurred October 3 in the 1500 block of Bremen Avenue around 10:40 a.m.

The mail carrier was not injured, authorities said, but a small amount of mail was stolen from her vehicle. The suspect did not display a weapon during the robbery.

Robbing a USPS mail carrier is a federal crime.

The suspect is believed to be an African American male with short afro-style hair, between the ages of 18 and 20, standing 5'6" to 5'8" tall and weighing about 140 pounds with a medium build.

At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a dark colored baseball cap with the afro sticking out, dark jeans, and a light colored long-sleeved shirt.

Anyone with information on the suspect's identity and whereabouts is asked to contact the United States Postal Inspection Service at 314-539-9382. All information provided will be kept strictly confidential.

The USPIS advises people to avoid taking action to apprehend this person themselves.
