Conyers police officers and FBI agents are on the lookout for two suspects who robbed an armored car at gunpoint Monday near the Wal-Mart shopping center in Conyers.

According to Conyers Police Chief David Cathcart, an armored car pulled in to the stand-alone ATM in the Home Depot/Pet Smart parking lot for a routine money drop on at approximately 9:30 a.m. Aug 10.

On the opposite side of the ATM, two men reportedly sat in a 2000 or newer model Monte Carlo waiting for the drop.
When the armored car employee went to enter the ATM, the passenger of the Monte Carlo reportedly pulled a gun and threatened to shoot if not given the money.

The employee complied with the demands, and the robbers fled the scene headed toward Ga. Highway 138 with an undisclosed amount of cash. The victims were unable to describe their robber, who wore a ski mask.
Because the stolen money is federally insured, the FBI was contacted and are working hand in hand with local police, Cathcart said.

The Monte Carlo is described as white with gold trim and dark tinted windows.

Cathcart said this was the first armored car robbery in Conyers' history.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the Conyers Police Department at 770-929-4211.
