The U.S. Postal Inspectors are looking for a man who they said robbed an Aurora post office last month, and are now offering a $25,000 reward for information that leads to his arrest.

The suspect, identified as Willie Dewayne Phillip, was indicted on Dec. 4 for one count of assault/robbery involving mail, money or other property of the U.S. using a dangerous weapon.

The robbery occurred at the post office at 1074 S. Ironton St. in Aurora on Nov. 8, according to a news release from the U.S. Postal Inspectors.

Phillip is considered armed and dangerous.
