Postal service worker ambushed by men in ski masks, master key stolen

DULUTH, Ga. — The master key for locked mailboxes in two zip codes around Duluth was stolen in an ambush of a postal worker, police said. The Duluth Police Department is now warning residents of the 30096 and 30097 zip codes to be “diligent in monitoring for irregularities.”

According to a Duluth Police Department case report, officers responded last week to a robbery report at the Rosemont Berkeley Lake apartment complex on Pleasant Hill Road.

There they discovered a postal worker who said he was loading mail onto the van at the complex’s mailbox area when three men wearing ski masks came at him from behind and “told him not to move and simulated to have a weapon through his jacket.”
