MIAMI (AP) - A $50,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction of anyone involved in one of 13 recent robberies of South Florida letter carriers.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer announced the reward Wednesday. They say the perpetrators are seeking information in mail that would allow them to steal people’s identities and commit fraud, especially income tax fraud.

The robberies began in October 2011, with the most recent one in March. Two men are serving prison time after they were convicted in the 2010 killing of a North Miami Beach letter carrier in an attempt to steal his mailbox key.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the postal inspectors at 1-877-876-2455.
