By Brittany Bivins

It's been one week since a postal truck driver was shot and robbed at the Hayneville Post Office, and so far, no arrests have been made.

Now law enforcement officials say they hope new leads could crack the case.

Postal inspectors are releasing more information about the crime that happened here last week at the Hayneville post office and they say they need your help to find the person responsible.

Law enforcement officials want you to be on the lookout for this vehicle. They say the gold Ford Explorer could be a key to solving the shooting of an unidentified postal worker. They say they're also looking for the woman driving it . She's described as an african american woman with red highlights in her hair. Officials won't say the woman is a suspect but they're calling her a "person of interest."

"Right now we cannot say whether she had involvement or not, but we do really need to speak with her, because she may be the key in solving this case," said Yulanda Burns with the Postal Inspection Service.

At a press conference, representatives from multiple law enforcement agencies called the case a priority.

"The postal inspector is part of each community. When you have a postal employee going door to door each day or being involved in the community, when you go into a postal service, that makes them involved in the community, so when a postal worker is accosted by some type of crime, that affects everyone," said Tony Garrett with Crimestoppers.

Crimestoppers officials is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. That money will be paid about 30 days after an arrest is made. You can call them at 215-STOP.

The Postal Inspection Service is offering a $50,000 reward for information. You can contact them toll free at 877-876-2455.
