A federal grand jury indicted a man accused of robbing a post office in Bloomfield at gunpoint, according to court documents unsealed Monday.

Joseph R. Filbert, 50, of Bloomfield made off with $569 from the Dec. 14, 2011, heist, prosecutors say. The grand jury indicted him on Wednesday and law enforcement officers arrested him on Friday, according to court records.

U.S. Postal Inspectors said the suspect lifted his hoodie to show a gun in his waistband while he demanded money.
