Armored car guard held up in NE D.C.
Update, 10:37 p.m.:
D.C. police have confirmed that money was stolen in the hold-up of an armored-truck guard Tuesday night in Northeast.
Police said the thieves seized bags of cash before fleeing. The amount of money involved was not disclosed.
A green mini-van that the robbers may have used was found beneath an overpass at 8th and Edgewood Streets NE, police said.
An armored car guard was held up behind a Northeast pharmacy Tuesday evening, and D.C. police are trying to locate the suspects in the incident, officials said.
It wasn't immediately clear whether the suspects got away with any money or anything else.
The attempted heist happened behind the CVS in the 600 block of Rhode Island Avenue when three suspects attacked the guard outside of the armored truck about 6:30 p.m., said officer Hugh Carew, a police spokesman. No injuries were reported.
Police responded to the scene with police dogs and a helicopter, and they issued a lookout for a green mini-van in which the three suspects may have fled, Carew said.
Police were also trying to determine if the guard's gun was stolen in the incident.
