The FBI and Santa Rosa Police Department are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspects responsible for the robbery of the Garda Armored Car Service in Santa Rosa, California.
On August 11, 2011, at approximately 10:45 p.m., Santa Rosa Police Officers were called to the Garda Armored Car Service at the 1600 block of Northpoint Parkway regarding an armed robbery. The robbery occurred as an armored car was arriving at the business.
The suspects, armed with an assault rifle and an automatic handgun, entered the business. Two victim employees were present at the time of the robbery and were disarmed, restrained, and forced to cooperate with the suspects while being held at gunpoint. The suspects then exited the building and ran from the location with an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency. Both victims were unharmed.
Witnesses described the first suspect as a Caucasian male, 5’10” to 6’0” tall, 180 to 190 lbs, with blue eyes, and the second suspect as a Hispanic male, 5’6” to 5’8” tall, 180 to 190 lbs, with long dark hair and a Hispanic accent. Both suspects were wearing dark clothing, black masks, and gloves.
The suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.
