Cash, money orders and a check writing machine were taken during an armed robbery at the U.S. Post Office in Clarendon Wednesday.
A lone man wearing a ski mask walked into the Post Office on Ten Mile Road about 11:30 a.m. and “displayed a handgun” pointing at the lone clerk on duty, and demanded cash and money orders, sheriff’s spokeswoman Michelle Tatum said.
After the clerk handed over cash and money orders, the man “demanded the money order machine,” Tatum said.
After taking what he demanded, the man left, driving away in a gray car, the report said.
The robber was described as a white man, about five feet, five inches tall weighing about 150 pounds, Tatum said.
