Authorities are on the hunt for the four Immokalee U.S. Post Office robbers
The hunt is on for four men who held three Immokalee U.S. Post Office employees at gunpoint and fled with cash Wednesday morning.
“I’m amazed,” Wesley Bird said, who lives in Immokalee. “Me living around here like I don’t like dang… four people come in armed? That’s kinda crazy.”
Wesley Bird lives next door to the Post Office. He is on edge that the suspects are still on the run.
“That’s the only thing I’m worried about,” Bird said. “That’s wild.”
Agents with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service were in Immokalee on Thursday. They have been going door to door, passing out flyers as they ask the community to come forward with any information.
“That may be the key then that may help us break this investigation and bring these folks to justice,” Ivan Ramirez said, of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
New 911 emergency calls, which were released from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, paint a scary scene from the three postal employees who were inside.
“They were all wearing masks,” the 911 caller said. “They had us lay on the floor and open our safe and give them the money.”
Federal Investigators said information from the public is critical. It is imperative in this instance as the robbers entered the Post Office through the back door, possibly staying out of sight from any cameras.
