LOS ANGELES (AP) — A $25,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of a man who robbed a Los Angeles post office at gunpoint.

The man stood in line with other customers at the Studio City post office on the afternoon of Sept. 18.

When it was his turn, he flashed a black semi-automatic pistol at the clerk and demanded cash.

A surveillance photo shows the man, wearing a dark-colored bandanna on his head and dark sunglasses, gripping the gun. Behind him customers wait in line, oblivious to the robbery-in-progress.

The man, described as being in his mid-40s, drove off in a dark-colored small SUV, possibly a Honda CRV.

Postal Inspector Renee Focht wouldn’t say how much money was taken.
