Armored car employee robbed while reloading Ga. ATM


An armored car employee was held up at gunpoint while reloading an ATM on Monday, said Cpl. Jake Smith with the Gwinnett County Police Department.

It happened just before noon at the Wells Fargo in the 3200 block of Centerville Highway near Scenic Highway in Snellville. The bank is located in a Publix shopping center.

News Chopper 2 flew over the scene and captured video of investigators looking for clues.

The FBI said a courier for Loomis Armored Car was approached from behind by a gunman who placed a semi-automatic gun to the courier's head.

The robber took an undisclosed amount of cash and was last seen in the back seat of a light blue or silver vehicle, according to agents.

The man was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a black cap.

The FBI is investigating the robbery to similar hold ups, including an armored truck robbery on Howell Mill Road in northwest Atlanta on Sept. 14, a robbery at a bank on South Marietta Parkway on Oct. 7, and an armored truck robbery at a bank on Buford Highway on Nov. 11.

Anyone with information in the robberies was asked to call the Atlanta bureau of the FBI at 404-679-9000.
