FAIRFIELD, Ala. — The United States Postal Service needs your help tracking down the person(s) who burglarized the Fairfield Post Office.
The postal service said the burglary happened between 5:45 p.m. Friday, October 5 and 6:00 a.m. October 6. Postal Inspector Tony Robinson said postal investigators will do a thorough investigation to see what may have been taken from the post office. He added there is a strong possibility that mail may have been taken.
“The post office is one of the last badges of security that people trust in here in the United States,” Robinson said. “We carry mail that has identities, credit cards and so forth that is invaluable. When that is violated, that violates the trust of the American people, which is why we have such a high price on this.”
The USPS is offering up to a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the burglary. Robinson added that at least one culprit cut themselves during the burglary and left a trail of blood.
