Police now confirm that an armored truck was robbed this morning at gunpoint. It happened shortly after 10:00 a.m. at the Bank of America automatic teller machine at the Washington Square Mall.
Washington police Lt. William Chrismon says two employees were servicing the ATM when they were robbed at gunpoint by more than one suspect.
Chrismon says the robbers took the guards' weapons, but would not confirm that the two were tied up. Police had in evidence bags large zip-ties that are commonly used as makeshift handcuffs.
The armored truck belonged to Garda Cash Logistics. A company spokesman told WITN News that they are cooperating with police, but could not offer any more information.
Customers say the Bank of America branch, which is located nearby, had its doors locked.
The SBI and the FBI are assisting in the investigation.
