Two suspects were arrested on federal charges following an armed robbery of a U.S. Postal Service mail carrier in Fontana on Feb. 26, according to the Fontana Police Department.

The robbery occurred at about 11:15 a.m. in the 14000 block of Stinson Court, said Public Information Officer Daniel Romero.

The male suspect, later identified as 25-year-old Bryant Godinez of Fontana, allegedly pointed a semiautomatic handgun at the victim and stole USPS mailbox keys and a tray of mail before fleeing the area in a silver Pontiac sedan driven by 21-year-old Lauren Valez of Fontana.

At about 11:53 a.m., officers located the suspect vehicle occupied by Godinez and Valez in the Sprouts parking lot on Sierra and Highland avenues. A vehicle search revealed a loaded semiautomatic handgun and the stolen property, Romero said.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service was notified and responded, along with Fontana P.D. detectives.
