In response to a theft at the Canyon Country Post Office during the President's Day weekend, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service offered a $10,000 reward on Thursday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals who burglarized the federal facility.

"At this time they are concerned with people selling stamps for less than face value," said postal inspector Renee Focht. She also warned the public to be wary of anyone trying to sell them stamps at a cut rate.

Postal workers returned to work at the office on Soledad Canyon Road near Sierra Highway on Tuesday morning and discovered the safe broken into, law enforcement officials said. In addition to missing stamps, some merchandise was also reported stolen since items were separated from parcels at the post office. However the merchandise was found.

"A lot of parcels were open," Focht said. "Yet they have been able to recover the merchandise. Inspectors determined there has not been a loss."

The theft occurred between closing on Saturday and opening Tuesday morning.
