HOUSTON - The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest of two suspects after a USPS letter carrier was robbed at gunpoint.

According to officials the letter carrier was robbed around 1:30 p.m. on Saturday on the 11000 block of Mile Drive in Houston.

"You know that's someone gifts that they've sent and bill sent and who knows what kind of personal information, that's right our banking account and everything like that," said Karen Fox, a Tower Oaks resident.

Officials are still unsure of how many packages, letters and checks have fallen in the wrong hands.

"Keep an eye out and be prepared," said Olly Northley, a postal worker.

The suspects were described as African-American males in their early to mid twenties, about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, with thin beards and clean shaven.

Both suspects were seen leaving the scene in a brown or green 2004 Toyota Corolla with the Texas license plate JBZ900.
