FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – On Saturday morning around 11 am a mail carrier was doing his job in Deerfield Beach when he was held up at gunpoint. U.S. Postal Inspectors want to catch the crook and tonight they’re warning people who live in the area that their personal information might be comprised.
Ivan Ramirez is a United States Postal Inspector. He said surveillance cameras in the neighborhood captured images of the car the crooks were in. Inspectors believe there were at least two people involved. He said the passenger in the car — a black man about 5 feet 5 inches tall with gloves on and his face covered — got out of a newer model, dark blue Chevy Camaro and held up the letter carrier.
“He ended up taking several trays of mail which is concerning to us not only the actual act of the armed robbery but also now we’re thinking our customers have potential liabilities and ID theft and things that come with that,” Ramirez told CBS 4 News.
Ramirez said the letter carrier was not physically injured but was shaken.
