Texas – Authorities continued late Monday to search for three men who robbed a Loomis armored truck driver at gunpoint in bank parking lot near a busy College Station intersection.
Police Lt. Chuck Fleeger said a dispatcher received a call at 2:06 p.m. reporting that a robbery had occurred near the Bank of America at the intersection of University Drive and Texas Avenue, which is across from Texas A&M.
Once on scene, police discovered the bank had not been robbed; rather, two Loomis employees reported being approached by a pair of masked men, at least one of whom was carrying a firearm, who demanded the armored truck driver and his passenger hand over money.
It’s common for police not to publicize how much was stolen in a robbery.
