Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department, working in coordination with Postal Inspectors with the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), have arrested and charged David Louis Walton, age 31, of an unconfirmed address, with the February 2 armed robbery of a United States Postal Service (USPS) letter carrier in Aspen Hill.
Investigators continue to look into the possibility that Walton was involved in other similar robberies of mail carriers in the area.
On February 2, at approximately 10:50 a.m., 4th District officers and USPIS postal inspectors responded to the area of Elm Tree Lane and Elm Tree Court for the report of an armed robbery that just occurred.
The investigation by MCP detectives determined that the carrier was delivering mail when the suspect approached him and threatened him with a handgun. The suspect demanded USPS property and the victim complied with the suspect’s demands.
