Man armed with shotgun robs armored truck employee

Montgomery County police are looking for a man who reportedly used a shotgun to rob an armored truck employee today in Colesville, officials said.

About 10:24 a.m., the suspect approached a Dunbar employee who was apparently in the vestibule area of the Bank of America branch at 13311 New Hampshire Avenue, about four miles north of Capital beltway, said Cpl. Dan Friz, a Montgomery police spokesman.

The gunman was able to get cash, Friz said.

It's not clear if the armored truck employee was hurt. But if he was, it wasn't serious, officials said.

Police had obtained only a vague description of the suspect as of noon. It was unknown if he was still on foot or had gotten into a car.
