The FBI is offering a reward of up to $30,000 for information in the case of an armored truck driver who was robbed at gunpoint last month outside an Atlanta bank.
The robbery took place the afternoon of March 21 in front of the Wells Fargo on Moreland Avenue, FBI spokesman Kevin Rowson said Tuesday.
Investigators say a Loomis employee was delivering “a substantial amount” of money to the bank just before 1 p.m. when he was ambushed at the front door by a man wearing a black mask and a black hoodie.
The suspect demanded the money and forcefully took it from the employee, the FBI said.
A 12-second surveillance clip released by the agency appears to show the Loomis employee struggling with the suspect right outside the bank’s front doors as he prepares to enter with a dolly.
Several customers witnessed the robbery, but some of them were gone by the time police arrived. The FBI is looking to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the incident.
Investigators declined to say how much money was taken and it’s unclear if the suspect acted alone. The man was last seen running from the bank, authorities said.
Anyone who provides information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case is eligible for the cash reward.
Tipsters are asked to contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.
