The U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) is offering a $50,000 reward for information on two suspects allegedly involved in the robbery of an El Cajon letter carrier.
According to the USPIS, the letter carrier was robbed on Nov. 27 in the 2400-block of Fletcher Parkway just after 5 p.m.
Details of the crime were not released, as the investigation is ongoing. However, the USPIS did release photos of two suspects (pictured above) believed to be responsible for the robbery.
Officials say the first suspect is a white male, approximately 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds with a medium build. He had a tear drop tattoo under his left eye and wore a long-sleeved dark colored shirt, dark shorts, black knee-high socks and black shoes at the time of the incident.
The second suspect is described by officials as a white male, approximately 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds. He had full-sleeve tattoos and wore a white “SoCal” logo T-shirt, shorts and black shoes.
Both men are believed to be between 25 and 30 years old.
Since the robbery of a U.S. letter carrier is a federal crime, the USPIS says the suspects could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine if caught.
Anyone with information on the crime should contact Postal Inspectors at (877) 876-2455. Callers should press No. 2 and refer to Case No. 2009378 when calling in information. Tipsters may be eligible for the hefty reward if their information leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspects. Callers may remain anonymous.
