The U.S. Postal Service announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two burglary suspects who broke into the North Glendale Post Office on Thursday.

Two men broke into the post office located at 1009 North Pacific Avenue between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. on November 14. The suspects were caught on camera.

The first suspect was described as a male with a large build, standing 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds, wearing a dark hooded jacket and gloves.

The second suspect was described as a male with a thin build, standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 140 pounds, with dark hair, wearing a dark baseball cap with a light-colored bill.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service advises postal customers not to approach suspicious individuals, but to note their appearance and any associated vehicles.

Postal customers were also advised to file a mail theft/vandalism complaint if they deposited mail after the last collection on Wednesday, November 13, at 5:30 p.m. Inspectors advise customers to deposit mail before the final collection time if possible.

Burglary of a post office is a federal crime. Offenders may be fined or imprisoned for up to five years, or both.
