A reward of up to $10,000 was being offered by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in connection with a burglary at the North Torrance post office earlier this month.

The burglary occurred between 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. on Oct. 24 at the facility in the 18000 block of Crenshaw Boulevard, according to a news release from the USPIS.

“We are encouraging customers who deposited mail after the collection time, about 6 p.m., the night before to submit a mail theft and vandalism complaint,” USPIS spokeswoman Stacia Crane told the Daily Breeze.

Surveillance video captured a picture of one of the alleged burglars. He was described as a Hispanic man in his mid-40s, 5 foot 10 inches tall, weighing about 220 pounds with a mustache and goatee, Crane told the newspaper.

Anyone with information was urged to call the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 877-876-2455, option 2, and refer to Case No. 2004238-BURG.
