Police seek culprit in DeKalb U.S. Postal robbery

Police are looking for a U.S. Post Office bandit.

DeKalb County police report one individual entered the Redan branch at the corner of Wellborn and Stone Mountain-Lithonia Industrial roads in Lithonia early Monday afternoon.

The lone thief "strong-armed" the postal staff and took an unspecified amount of money and other items, police spokesman Officer Jason Gagnon told the AJC.

The post office was closed late Monday afternoon and two police officers were posted outside yellow crime-scene tape at the building, witnesses told the AJC.

Gagnon said the suspect remains at large.
