FBI offering reward for info about "armed and dangerous" armored car robbers

The Memphis FBI office is looking for help to arrest the people they said robbed two armored cars.

Agents told FOX13 the people robbed a Loomis armored car on June 27 and a Brinks armored car on August 30.

They said they do not believe the same people were involved in both robberies.

The FBI said that on June 27 around 1:00 p.m., a black man armed with a pistol robbed a Loomis car guard who had just picked up cash, checks, and other valuables from the Wal-Mart in the 6900 block of E. Shelby Dr.

Agents said shots were exchanged between the robber and the guard, but the robber was able to take off with the guard’s bag, containing the cash and checks. They said he took off in a black car and left going north towards Riverdale Road.

The FBI thinks that same person is responsible for an attempted robbery of another Loomis armored car on June 13. However, agents told us the guard was able to stop that attempt.

The suspect in the Loomis car robbery is described as a black man, about 6’ and 140-160 lbs. with a medium build, dark complexion, black hair, and brown eyes. The suspect’s vehicle is described as a black, 4-door, Dodge Avenger with tinted windows.

On August 30, the FBI said a Brinks armored car guard was shot in the face and robbed.

Agents said it happened around 11:15 a.m. in the 6000 block of Winchester Road at the SunTrust Bank.

Officials said the suspect took the deposit bag and took off in a black vehicle with no license plate. The vehicle is described as being a black Acura TL with tinted windows and chrome rims.

That suspect is described only as a black man wearing all black clothing and armed with a semi-automatic handgun.

The suspects from each incident are considered armed and dangerous by the FBI.

Brinks, Loomis, and the FBI are offering a $60,000 reward for information leading to an arrest or grand jury indictment.
