Law enforcement offered a reward up to $50,000 Thursday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a man who robbed a post office in Encino the previous week.
A man suspected of robbing a post office in Encino is seen in these images provided by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service on Feb. 15, 2018.
The incident happened at the post office on 4930 Balboa Ave. around 10:45 a.m. on Feb. 8, according to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Officials said a white man in his mid-20s to late 30s was armed with a handgun while he robbed the facility.
Authorities released surveillance video of the incident, which shows the man displaying what seems to be a weapon to a postal service employee after handing over a plastic bag.
He told the worker that he had 20 seconds to give him everything he had or he would shoot, said Tosha Dennis, a spokeswoman for U.S. Postal Inspection Service. The employee handed him cash, and the robber walked away, the surveillance video showed.
