The U. S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect responsible for the armed robbery and assault of a postal employee at the Burgin Post Office.

He was spotted leaving the scene in a green colored full size pick up truck, driving in the direction of Danville, KY. The suspect wore a long sleeve camouflaged hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and brandished a black handgun.
