Postal Worker robbed at gunpoint in Fort Walton Beach, suspects arrested in Alabama

A USPS worker faced a gun-wielding suspect who stole her postal box keys. Swift action by authorities led to the arrest of two suspects in Alabama.

On July 21, 2023, the Fort Walton Beach Police Department was called to Bobolink Dr NE, for an armed robbery that had just occurred. A United States Postal Service worker reported that a young black male, approximately 18-25 years of age, approached her, brandished a firearm, and stole her postal box keys.

  • The male then departed the area in a white Mercedes sedan.
  • The postal worker was not harmed, according to the FWBPD.

Shortly after the call for service was received, several leads were developed, and it was discovered the suspects were possibly traveling to Alabama. According to the FWBPD, detectives coordinated with the authorities in Alabama to distribute a “Be On the Look Out” (BOLO) notice for the suspects and vehicle.

  • Approximately 2 hours after the call came in, Montgomery Police observed the suspect’s vehicle. A high-risk traffic stop was conducted, and two suspects were taken into custody without incident.

Keondre Daniels of Montgomery, AL, was charged with one count of Armed Robbery. Marquan Johnson also of Montgomery, AL, was charged with one count of Accessory to Armed Robbery. Both Daniels and Johnson are being held in Montgomery County Jail awaiting extradition back to Florida.

  1. Seems like that took a long time. Maybe we should endorse some kind of GPS on these sets of keys? I am solid on law enforcement . . . just looking for answers to keep they and the public safer. Please feel free to advise the rest of us!
