Authorities are asking the public to help identify and locate the subjects responsible for the armed robbery of a Brinks armored vehicle that occurred earlier in the month, as the Brinks truck was making a delivery to the Bank of America branch located at 1000 Sandy Hill Road in Norristown, Pennsylvania.
Three unidentified subjects drove up to the Brinks truck as it was making the delivery, in a Chrysler Town and Country minivan that had been stolen earlier that day from the parking lot of a convenience store on Cottman Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia. The three males, described as either black or Hispanic, were wearing masks, dark jackets, jeans, and gloves and were armed with handguns and an assault rifle. After striking the armored car employee in the head with the butt of an assault rifle and knocking him to the ground, the delivery of cash that he was carrying was stolen. The three males then fled in the stolen minivan through the Regatta Apartment complex behind the bank branch, crashed through a chain barricade, and then abandoned the stolen minivan in the 900 block of Main Street in Norristown. The males switched into an early 2000s model year Nissan Pathfinder, black or dark blue in color, and then fled the area towards Bridgeport. A picture of the Nissan Pathfinder is below.
Brinks has offered a $25,000 reward to assist in the investigation for the arrest and conviction of the subjects responsible for the robbery and the recovery of the stolen money.
These subjects are considered armed and dangerous, and anyone with information is urged to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or the Norristown Police Department at 610-270-0977. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
