Police investigating armed robberies at Pr. George's ATMs
Police in Prince George’s County are searching for a group of suspects they say are staking out drive-through ATMs and robbing the people who withdraw money from them.
Investigators are exploring several such incidents over the last few months, many concentrated in the Beltsville area. The most recent occurred on Dec. 4, when a man robbed someone at the Chevy Chase bank in the 10800 block of Baltimore Avenue, police said.
"They’re basically waiting for them to drive up to the ATM and approach them at gunpoint and demand money," said Officer Larry Johnson, a Prince George's police spokesman.
Johnson said investigators are exploring whether a single group is behind all the robberies or whether different individuals just have the same idea for getting quick cash.
Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call the Prince George's County Police Department's District VI Robbery Suppression Team at 301-937-0910.
