Prince George’s County police are looking for at least two suspects who stole more than $200,000 outside a Bank of America in an armed robbery Friday morning.
The suspects pointed guns at armed guards outside their armored vehicle as the guards loaded money into an ATM in the 10600 block of Baltimore Avenue in Beltsville, Md. The suspects stole the money and fled in a van, said police. There were no reports of injuries during the robbery that occurred at about 10:30 a.m.
The stolen money amount to more than $200,000, according to a person familiar with the investigation.
Prince George’s police spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan called the heist a “brazen robbery,” that “was obviously orchestrated and calculated.”
A third guard in the armored vehicle triggered an alarm, individuals inside the bank sounded another alarm and police were at the scene in minutes.
By then, the suspects had abandoned the car they used in the robbery, police said. When asked how the suspects were able to get away and what weapons were used, police declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.
Deputy Chief Sammy Patel said, “these guys are out there. We’re confident in our ability to catch them, so it’s best for them to turn themselves in.”
