A federal agency is offering a reward of up to $50,000 in connection with a robbery last month at the Burgin post office.
A man who robbed the post office April 13 assaulted the employee on duty, causing significant injuries, according to a news release.
The robber had a black handgun. He is described as a white man in his early 20s, 5 feet, 7 inches tall and with a thin build. He had short, dark hair.
The man wore a long-sleeved camouflage hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and a full face mask similar to the one worn by a person who robbed a convenience store in Danville on April 12, state police said in a news release.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering the reward in the post-office robbery for information that leads to an arrest and conviction, according to state police.
Postal inspectors and state police are investigating the case.
Anyone with information about the robbery of the post office is asked to contact the U. S. Postal Inspection Service National Law Enforcement Communication Center at 1-877-876-2455, (option 2), and refer to Case #1922942.
The line is open at all times, and callers may remain anonymous.
