DAYTON, Ohio – In a high-stakes plea for public assistance, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) is offering a substantial $150,000 reward. The aim: to apprehend two suspects behind the armed robbery of a USPS letter carrier.
On October 14, near 4641 Merrick Drive, the letter carrier was robbed at gunpoint, the assailants making away with an arrow key. The carrier escaped unharmed.
One suspect, dressed in black and gold pants, stands around 5′10″, weighs about 150 pounds, and is estimated to be in the late teens to early twenties. The other, attired entirely in black, is approximately 5′8″, 140 pounds, and believed to be of a similar age bracket.
Joint efforts between the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and the USPIS have intensified in light of the incident. Those with any leads are implored to reach out to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service directly at 937-227-1222.
