Chicago police are warning of an armed robber who is targeting postal carriers.
The person is not taking the mail or packages, but rather their keys!
“It really will impede mail service, because if our carriers are not feeling safe, they’re not going to deliver the mail,” said Mack Julion, president of the National Association of Letter Carriers Chicago.
It’s become a frightening pattern: mail delivery drivers robbed at gunpoint.
As this happens more often, postal carriers are feeling helpless, union leaders said.
“They are traumatized. They’re off work. I mean, they’re out there doing their job. You are at work delivering the mail and someone comes up and sticks a gun to you for some arrow keys,” Julion said.
