U.S. Postal inspectors are on the hunt for a man who they say robbed a Rancho Bernardo post office Wednesday afternoon — a federal crime.
The suspect used a gun to hold up the facility at 11700 Lomica Drive at about 4:15 p.m. He ordered all the customers to lay on the ground and then demanded cash from the employees, according to Postal Inspector Ricky Vida.
He said the man's appearance was hidden by a gray, hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses, so witnesses did not give a good description.
The suspect was last seen getting in a silver car driven by a woman.
"It's against federal law to rob a post office, and the U.S. Postal inspectors are investigating," said Vida.
