OLD JAMESTOWN, Mo. – Two men are charged with robbing postal workers in St. Louis County. Roy Jones, 19, and Xavier Boyd, 18, are each being held on a $50,000 bond. They could also face federal charges because of the crimes against federal employees.
A postal worker delivering mail was approached by a man with a handgun Thursday at around 12:30 pm near the intersection of Sunswept Park Court and Springtime Lane. The man demanded the key the postal worker uses to open a mailbox. The employee handed over the key and the suspect got into a black Volkswagen SUV which drove away.
St. Louis County Police found the vehicle a few miles away. The suspects sped away when police tried to pull them over. The Volkswagen crashed at New Halls Ferry Road and Lindbergh Boulevard. The suspects ran and were eventually placed under arrest.
