A man wielding a handgun kicked in the back door of a West New York post office and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and valuables after locking the clerk in a back room early this afternoon, authorities said.
The robber kicked in the back door at 1 p.m., pointed the weapon and locked the lone employee in a back room, said Josh Shandler, a U.S. Postal Service inspector.The clerk wasn’t injured, Shandler said. The bandit was described as black, about 5’10” with a medium build and no distinguishing features, other than large, square designer sunglasses, he said.
U.S. Postal Service inspectors are at the facility now, where they must “go through and do all the accounting” to determine exactly what was taken, Shandler said. They do know that some personal and postal property is missing but are unable to put a dollar figure on it yet. KEEP READING→
