AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) – Aurora police are searching for two men who robbed a mail carrier and stole a U.S. Postal Service delivery truck. The incident happened near East Kentucky Avenue and East Ohio Circle on Monday afternoon about 1 p.m.
“There were four to five different cop cars here, interviewing people walking by. They were here for two hours, three hours maybe. I think it’s scary. I’ve never heard of anyone stealing a mail truck, but there has been a lot of car thefts lately,” Natalie, who lives nearby, said.
Aurora police and the USPS released a statement that said, “Investigation revealed that a suspect stole a cell phone from the victim (postal employee) who then chased after them. A different suspect nearby then took some USPS property and stole the USPS mail vehicle. Postal Inspectors responded and assisted with the investigation. The mail vehicle was found nearby about 2 hours later with the mail still inside.”
