In an effort to bring the perpetrator of a recent USPS letter carrier robbery to justice, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a substantial reward of up to $50,000 for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect. This incident occurred on September 5th, 2023, at approximately 7:25 p.m., in the breezeway on the north side of a residential complex located in Portland.
The unidentified male suspect, who remains at large, is described as being between 5’8″ and 5’10” in height, blue eyes, possessing a medium build, and sporting a clean-cut appearance. During the robbery, the suspect was seen wearing a black jacket adorned with white lettering on the back.
