Bad Holiday Delivery in SW Philly

Police: postal impostor, 3 others stole $10K

A local coin collector was taken for $10,000 after he answered a knock he thought was from a postal worker, according to police sources.

This is how it went down, police sources told NBC 10 News.

A woman dressed as a postal employee knocked on the door of the coin collector's Southwest Philly home. She told him he had to sign for a package, said sources.

When the 48-year-old man opened the door of his home in the 6100 block of Grays Avenue to get the package, the postal impostor's three partners in crime put a gun to the man's head.

The 30-year-old female impostor and the three men went into the house, tied up the homeowner and his wife with duct tape and a stereo cord.

The fearsome foursome made off with about 10-grand in coins.

Neither of the victims was hurt during the home invasion.
