Mail carriers targeted in armed robberies, postal service looking to ID suspects

The U.S. Postal Service is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for help finding whoever is behind recent armed robberies of mail carriers around the state.

Two armed robberies over the weekend targeted mail carriers in Delray Beach in the 4000 block of Village Drive and in the area of the Grove Park Apartments in Port St. Lucie.

Postal Inspector Blanca Alvarez said a mail carrier was robbed Monday in Palatka, and another was robbed last week in Tamarac.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office released surveillance camera footage Monday that showed a suspect running toward a dark sedan, then driving away.

“Fortunately, we can report the mail carriers were not physically injured. Of course, they were shaken up,” Alvarez said.
