Bronx laborer gun whipped by shooter who loots $112,000 cash from mail center safe; FBI examining

A Bronx mailman was gun whipped by a shooter who then took $112,000 money and 10 boxes of cash orders from a mail center safe Tuesday, police said.

The mailman had quite recently been dropped off by her better half at the Castle Hill Ave. branch when she was gone after around 7 a.m. The evildoer, who was ready to pounce outside the branch, gun whipped her and requested her to open the mail center and afterward the protected inside, cops said.

The mail center was not planned to open until 8 a.m.
A shop specialist on the block, who gave his name just as Mohammed, didn’t have the foggiest idea what occurred, yet later watched reconnaissance video his store caught.

The shooter pulled up to the mailing station in a white Honda Odyssey minivan at 5:22 a.m., the video shows. He sat in the driver’s seat as the mailman and her better half pulled up in a dull dark minivan at 7:05 a.m.

The shop specialist said the mailman generally gets dropped off by her better half, who helps her open the entryway before he drives off.

“[The husband] strolled back to his vehicle, he left across the road,” Mohammed said. “Today someone [the gunman] was stopped out front in a white Honda Odyssey. He was stopped before 6, he held up from that chance to 7.”

At 7:08 a.m., the shooter escaped the Honda and ran toward the mailing station, the video shows.

“The person took out a firearm and put it to her head,” Mohammed said. “That’s what the spouse sees and he ran back to the entryway. The burglar opened the entryway and hauled them in.”
“You need to be a legend? You and her go both,” the looter told the spouse, prior to compelling him inside the mail center with his better half, as indicated by a record Mohammed heard from cops.
The convict wiped out the protected, which contained the money, cash orders and a printer, prior to running out of the area.

He was back in the Honda at 7:17 a.m., when he drove away.

The worker was treated at the scene. Her significant other wasn’t do any harm.
“Beneficially, nobody got injured,” Mohammed said. “That might have been me, it might have been anybody.”

The Postal Inspection Service is driving the examination with help from the NYPD and FBI.
