Federal investigators are offering a sizable reward for information that leads them to a pair of mail thieves who struck in Uptown last month.

The thieves stole mail from a building on the 1000 block of West Leland around 3:30 a.m. on Feb. 7, according to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

One of the thieves wore an arm cast, the agency said, and the duo used a white Nissan Rogue to pull off the heist.

A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information that leads investigators to the identification and successful prosecution of the thieves.

Anyone with tips about the case may contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 877-876-2455 regarding case 2700868-MT.
