ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — The United States Postal Inspection Service is looking for an SUV in connection with an armed robbery of a mail carrier last week.
A reward poster from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service said the armed robbery happened at around 1:35 p.m. on June 1 on the 1800 block of Chambers Road in north St. Louis County.
Inspectors said a man in his late teens robbed the mail carrier at gunpoint and drove away from the scene in a black SUV, possibly a Volkswagen Tiguan shown in a photo attached to the poster.
The suspect is considered armed and dangerous, and you should not attempt to stop the suspect yourself.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 1-877-876-2455 and say "Law Enforcement". The case number is 3742546.
A reward of up to $50,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
