LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Police are on the the hunt for suspects in what are believed to be a number of strong-armed mail thefts.

On the afternoon of January 18, Las Vegas Metro Police responded to a robbery call near the 2800 block of Drury Street (near Torrey Pines and Cheyenne).

The victim was a mail carrier who was adding mail to a mailbox when a silver car pulled over next to the postal truck.

A few seconds later a black male adult wearing a ski mask, simulating a handgun, was standing behind the victim. A second suspect entered the postal truck, removed two bins of mail and placed it into the silver car. The suspects then fled from the area prior to officer’s arrival.

Detectives were able to determine that there have been numerous events involving mail theft or suspicious activity related to mail within the LVMPD’s jurisdiction.

The vehicles being used are described as a white and black Jeep Cherokee and a grey/silver four door sedan.
