He was given an undisclosed amount of money before he fled on foot.

The suspect was least seen wearing a gray-hoolded "Arizona" sweatshirt, a green baseball hat with "Dolphins" on the front, black basketball shorts and white shoe. He also was wearing latex gloves, police said.

    The postal inspection service is offering up a pretty hefty reward after a package was stolen from a Tucson woman's doorstep. This wasn't a Christmas present, it was something much more precious, a father's ashes.
