The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a pair of masked men who burglarized two post offices in Glendale within hours of each other early last Thursday.
The North Glendale Post Office, 1009 N. Pacific Ave., appears to have been hit first at around 2:30 a.m., followed by the Grand Central Station Post Office, 6444 San Fernando Road, between 3 and 4 a.m., according to postal officials.
In both incidents, the two men took mail and parcels, according to postal public information representative Stacia Crane.
Postal inspectors encourage customers who deposited mail after the last collection last Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. to submit a Mail Theft and Vandalism Complaint either at their local post office, online at postalinspectors.uspis.gov or by phone at (877) 876-2455, press option 3.
Surveillance video indicates the same two men were involved in both burglaries.
One is about 5’11” tall, roughly 160 pounds with a large build and wearing a dark hooded jacket and gloves. The other is approximately 5’10” tall, about 140 pounds with a thin build, dark hair and wearing a dark baseball cap with a light-colored bill.
Burglary of a post office is a federal crime, and offenders may be imprisoned for up to five years, be fined or both.
Anyone with information about either of the burglaries is asked to call postal inspectors at (877) 876-2455, press option 2 and refer to case #2007344.
