A strange string of robberies stared occurring earlier this month in two North Miami-Dade cities. On October 5, a female mail carrier was beaten and robbed in Miami Gardens. A similar incident occurred involving another female mail carrier in North Miami on the 14th, and on the 17th yet another mail carrier was robbed. Now police have arrested three teenagers in connection with the crimes.
Steven Daniels, 18, and an unidentified juvenile were arrested for the October 5 beating and robbery, according to NBC Miami.
The police also arrested a second unidentified juvenile for the October 17 robbery. The suspect held the mail carrier at gunpoint near Northeast 133rd Street and Sixth Avenue. Police say the incidents seem to be unrelated.
However, no arrest made yet in the October 14 incident. The Postal Inspection Service is offering a $5,000 reward, and anyone with information is asked to call 1-877-876-2455.
