Armored car robbery in Howard County

By Washington Post editors

Howard County police are investigating the Monday afternoon armed robbery of an armored truck employee.

Officials said a man armed with a gun approached a Dunbar Armored truck carrier about 12:40 p.m. in Dorsey's Search Village Center in Ellicott City. The carrier had just picked up a deposit from a Giant grocery story.

Neither the carrier nor a second employee in the truck were injured.

The suspect fled in a Nissan Sentra; it was later recovered in a nearby residential area.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call 410-313-STOP.

Armored car crews don't make enough to protect someone elses money.

Sounds like a clean getaway, must be a pro at work...

This is near Baltimore, so that money will be spent in a month on heroin.

Given they robbed an armored car, usually with armed guards on it, whoever did this has been watching the location for awhile.
People don't normally happen upon an armored car and rob it.
On top of that, the bills coming from the store have already been circulated so there isn't bait money to help catch them either.
I think Frank is correct...this wasn't someone's first rodeo.

Someone watched Ben Afleck and "The Town" over the holidays.
