FBI Announces Rewards/Update on Armored Car Robbers
ATLANTA—David J. LeValley, Special Agent in Charge, FBI Atlanta Field Office, announces that the FBI and Dunbar Armored are offering rewards for information and the identity of those individuals responsible for the armed robbery of an armored car courier that occurred in DeKalb County, Georgia last November.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward and Dunbar is offering a $5,000 reward.
On Saturday, November 26, 2016, at approximately 2:33 p.m., an individual approached an armed Dunbar Armored Car courier while he was servicing an ATM drive through station located at the Bank of America, 3141 Turner Hill Road, Lithonia, Georgia. The individual brandished a handgun, pointed it at the courier, and forcefully took an undisclosed amount of money.
The armed robber and another individual left the bank in a dark-colored Jeep SUV, which investigators now think could possibly be a Jeep Compass. The license plate on the vehicle was removed. The subjects drove away at a high rate of speed heading northwest on Mall Parkway past Stonecrest Mall.
The FBI would also like the public to take notice of a surveillance photo of the vehicle showing a bumper sticker on the upper left corner of the SUV’s hatch door, just below the window. It’s not a clear picture, but we believe the sticker is white in color.
Investigators now also believe the subjects may have scouted out the bank days or even weeks before the robbery. Any suspicious activity around the bank during that time period is of vital interest to them. One of the male assailants was at least 5’9” in height. Due to clothing and the manner of the assault, there is not much else in the way of physical descriptions of either individual. The primary subject was fully dressed in black clothing, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, and ski mask.
Anyone with information about this armed robbery should contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477). All calls can remain anonymous.
