Columbus police and U.S. postal inspectors are still looking for the suspects in the Dec. 4 theft of mail from the German Village postal branch.

There is a $50,000 reward being offered by the U.S. Postal Service for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved.

The crime was classified a robbery because the thieves threatened a woman and stole her cell phone. Columbus police officers reported that at 6:10 p.m. Dec. 4, two men were at the rear of the U.S. Post Office, 500 E. Whittier St.

A worker reported two men stole a mail bag off the rear of a postal truck as a worker loaded a cart of mail onto the lift of the truck. The two ran from the lot.

But, police reported at the time, another employee saw the theft. As the men fled, she pulled out her cell phone and used it to take a picture of the men.

One of the men saw the employee, came back and stole her cell phone.

Both men were described as black, in their mid-30s and 6-feet to 6-feet, 3-inches. One wore a Carhart jacket, dark clothing and a dark hooded sweatshirt covering his face.

The second wore a dark plaid jacket, dark clothing and a dark hooded sweatshirt covering his face.

There have been no arrests in the crime yet, a spokeswoman for Crime Stoppers said.

Anyone with information may call Crime Stoppers at 645-TIPS (8477).
