Postal service mail carrier robbed at gunpoint in Florida
DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Federal officials are offering a reward up to $25,000 for information that leads to the arrest of two people who robbed a letter carrier at gunpoint in a South Florida neighborhood.
The robbery happened Saturday morning in Deerfield Beach.
U.S. Postal Inspection Service spokesman Ivan Ramirez tells news outlets the suspects approached the mail carrier and demanded a master key that gains access to community mailboxes in apartment and condominium complexes.
Ramirez says the letter carrier didn’t have a master key, so the suspects took several trays of mail along with some packages.
