The United States Postal Service needs your help to catch the guy who robbed one of their letter carriers of money, a uniform, and a vehicle. They are offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
At approximately 3:00 PM on August 22, a Hispanic male robbed at gunpoint a letter carrier walking a route on Chapin St. in south Toledo. The robber took the carrier's wallet, and then demanded the carrier's shirt, and the keys to the mail truck. The robber then fled the scene in the truck with more than 200 pieces of mail.
The truck was later recovered, burned, in an alley behind 269 Canal St.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his mid-20s, approximately 5'8 and weighing 170 pounds with black hair.
