ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – In the last month, three postal workers were robbed while on their delivery route in Albuquerque.
The U.S. Postal Service says the first robbery happened on Jan. 11 at gunpoint, and the second armed robbery happened on Jan. 18. Then the third mail carrier was robbed over the weekend at the Mountain View Vista Apartments in northeast Albuquerque.
The postal service says they are still looking for the suspects. They have released surveillance pictures of the suspects involved in the Jan. 11 and Jan. 18 robberies. Now, they are offering a $50,000 reward for any information leading to their arrests.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is leading the investigation. While they did not confirm what was stolen, friends of the mail carriers tell KOB 4 the robbers got away with keys that can open neighborhood mailbox units, like the ones you would see outside an apartment.
