Teens charged with robbing letter carriers of mailbox keys at gunpoint

ST. LOUIS — Two teenagers are facing federal charges after police said they stole arrow keys from mail carriers at gunpoint earlier this month.

A press release from U.S. Attorney Sayler Fleming of the Eastern District of Missouri said 19-year-old Roy Lee Jones and 18-year-old Xavier Sean Boyd were charged with two counts of robbery and two counts of theft of a mail key on June 15.

According to charging documents, on June 9 Jones approached a letter carrier near Lindbergh Boulevard and New Halls Ferry Road in Florissant at around 12:30 p.m. and demanded his arrow key.

Less than 20 minutes later and about a half-mile away, Boyd robbed a different carrier of his arrow key.

Arrow keys are used to open certain USPS collection boxes.
