The U.S. Postal Service mail carrier says he was robbed at gunpoint while delivering mail in south Charlotte. Police say the 66 year old man says it happened around 6:30pm Thursday on Candlewood Drive, near South Blvd.

The mailman says someone in a car pulled up next to him, pulled out a gun and took his cell phone and a key. The suspect then reportedly kidnapped the man, but later dropped him off. Some of the incident was captured on a neighbor’s home security system. The picture was dark, but neighbor Timothy Jones says it was a white car with four doors.

Police say the mail carrier is a little shaken up, but he was not hurt.

The USPS is now offering a $50,000 reward for any information on the kidnapping and robbery. Charlotte’s Police’s Crimestoppers are asking if anyone knows anything about the case to contact them at (704) 334-1600.
