Teens robbed by two men posing as postal workers.
Birmingham, AL 05/30/2012 – Just after 2:00pm yesterday afternoon deputies were called to the 6500 block of Telia Drive in unincorporated northeast Jefferson County to investigate a robbery. The victims were 18, 17, and 16 and had been at home while their mother went to get them something to eat. A black male suspect came to the door and knocked. The 17 year old opened the door. The suspect was dressed in a Postal uniform shirt and gray pants. He told the victim that he had a package to deliver and motioned for a second black male suspect to come from the van. When the second suspect got to the door he produced a handgun and the two forced their way into the home. Once inside, the other suspect retrieved a knife from the kitchen and ordered all three victims to lie on the floor. The suspects went through the house and stole cash and electronics. As they were leaving, they forced the victims to give them their cell phones. The suspects fled in a white minivan driven by a black female. The suspects were described as black males twenty to twenty-five years old. No one was injured. Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact the Sheriffs Office at 325-1450 or Crimestoppers at 254-7777
