Conn. (WTNH) — The United States Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects involved in several USPS mail carrier robberies across the state.
According to USPIS officials, robberies took place in the following cities on these dates:
- November 2, 2021 — West Haven
- March 16, 2022 — Hartford
- September 30, 2022 — Waterbury
- November 1, 2022 — Middletown
- November 10, 2022 — Greenwich
- December 7, 2022 — Stamford
Middletown Police Captain Brian Hubbs says if you live in one of the towns impacted, pay close attention to your financial accounts for a few months.
“Make sure the things that you have written checks for have been cleared by the appropriate companies and then immediately report it to your bank if you found that a check has been what we call ‘whitewashed’ or bleached out and rewritten to something else,” Hubbs said. “So, pay close attention to that just to make sure you’re not victimized in a second way.”
Additionally, the USPIS is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects who stole USPS keys from the mail carriers.
USPIS urged witnesses to not apprehend these suspects themselves. Instead, anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact the USPIS at 1 (877) 876-2455 and say “Law Enforcement.”
