Arrest made in armored car robbery

A man who allegedly robbed and threatened a Dunbar Armored car courier was arrested, the FBI’s Atlanta office said Friday.

Antwan Larmond Zachary, 21, of Atlanta, was charged with robbery, interference with commerce by threats or violence and use of a weapon in the commission of a crime in the incident, FBI spokesman Stephen Emmett said.

The armed robbery occurred about 3:30 p.m. July 8 after the courier finished a cash pickup at the Express Zone convenience store in the 300 block of Cleveland Avenue, Emmett said. A man pulled out a handgun and took large amounts of cash from the guard, Atlanta police said in an earlier Crime Stoppers bulletin.

The FBI did not release information about Zachary’s arrest.

There have been at least two armored car robberies in Atlanta in the past two months. Two armed men allegedly stole about $190,000 from a security guard of a Dunbar Armored truck along Lakewood Avenue in May.

The men also stole the victim’s duty weapon.

The FBI and Dunbar Armored offered a $20,000 award in connection with the robbery. Anyone with information in that case is asked to call the FBI’s Atlanta office at 404-679-9000.
