VIDEO: Postal carrier robbed at gunpoint in Raleigh
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A United States Postal Service letter carrier was robbed at gunpoint Thursday.
The incident happened on Green Hall Way in Raleigh just before 2 p.m.
USPS shared the neighbor’s Ring camera footage of the robber, who was seen driving a white Chrysler 400 with black rims.
“You got the mail? You got the mail for right here?” the suspect asked the carrier.
The video shows he then pulls a gun, pushing what appears to be a woman letter carrier against her truck. The thief wasn’t interested in the mail, but something in the carrier’s pocket, asking multiple times “where is it?”
A U.S. Postal Service spokesperson would only say what was stolen was “postal property.”
The suspect is described as a man with brown eyes, a medium complexion, approximately 5′6″ to 5′8″ tall, with a medium build, and weighing approximately 170 pounds. The suspect was wearing a long sleeve navy Adidas top with stripes running from one elbow across the shoulder to the other elbow, black saggy pants, white tennis shoes, and a mask.
According to MPD data, within the past 90 days there have been nearly 40 crimes within a half a mile of this location.
Robbing a postal worker is a federal crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. If you can assist, call 877-876-2455.
