Police investigate armored car robbery
Law enforcement officials are still investigating a robbery of a Dunbar armored truck that occurred around 10 a.m. Thursday.
The heist started in Canton while the truck was making a scheduled delivery at the ATM at the Exxon on Radio Hill, said Canton Police Chief Bryan Whitner. An unknown white male gained entry into the armored truck and took control of the two occupants, leading them away from the ATM.
The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and left the vehicle while still in Canton.
The drivers then continued their route to the State Employees' Credit Union in Clyde near the old WalMart plaza and filed the robbery report. No one was injured during the robbery.
No suspects have been identified yet, and police are working to determine the getaway vehicle.
Whitner said detectives are evaluating all the information at hand and asks anyone who may have been near the Exxon station (Single Stop III) in Canton to call the Canton Police Department at 828-648-2376.
Authorities from the State Bureau of Investigation, Canton Police Department and Haywood County Sheriff's Office are looking into the incident and more information is forthcoming.
