Two men robbed a post office Wednesday in Canaryville on the South Side.
They entered the post office at 11:22 a.m. in the 4100 block of South Halsted Street and asked an employee for a money order, according to Chicago police. The Stockyard Station post office is located at 4101 S. Halsted.
One of the men grabbed the entire booklet of money orders out of the employee’s hands and they both ran to a silver sedan outside, police said. The car was last seen heading east on 41st Street.
