Alexandria police have arrested a city man for allegedly holding up a postal carrier earlier this month.

Gary Love III, 20, faces a robbery charge for his alleged role in the crime. Authorities said three masked men stopped the postal carrier on the 700 block of Fayette St. on January 15.

At least one member of the trio had a firearm, police said. The group stole the postal carrier’s mobile phone.

While Love is being held at the city jail without bail, officials are asking anyone with information about the crime to come forward. Tipsters can contact the department’s criminal investigations section at 703-746-6711 or the U.S. Postal Inspection Service — which is offering up to $25,000 for information leading to an arrest — at 1-877-876-2455.
