DALLAS -- Do you recognize the two in this video? Probably not. But if you do, $25,000 in reward money could be yours!
Authorities are trying to find the two men who robbed a united states postal service mailman.
Here`s how investigators say it happened: Two men ran up to the the poor guy, one whipped out a gun while the other snatched mail and other belongings from the guy. Then ran off from a neighborhood in Oak Cliff, on Falls Drive.
Now, we`ve heard all about the package nabbers stealing boxes off porches. But, apparently that isn`t cutting it anymore and criminals are getting bold! It`s already a tough job delivering mail.
You see, because they are federal employees... if you rob one, you can get locked up for 10 years. And if you do it with a gun, 25 years!
Investigators say most people don`t take that big of a risk, but these two did. And if you don`t recognize their feet there`s a little bit more to go on.
Both are black men in their 20`s somewhere between 5`6 and 5`10. One of them has a cross tattooed under his right eye.
Do you know someone like that? $25,000 is on the line.
A representative from USPS says, “The safety of USPS employees and customers’ mail is of the utmost importance to the US Postal Inspection Service,” said Thomas L.
