The car’s driver had been emptying an ATM in the entertainment complex and preparing to deliver more money, Det. Dennis McCarthy wrote in the release. While he was occupied, another man “ran up from behind the Brink’s employee" and stole a bag of money meant for delivery.
Witnesses spotted multiple suspects fleeing the scene, according to the release, but police did not specify the number involved in the incident.
The armored car driver was in the process of emptying the ATM when he was approached by two suspects. One of the suspects grabbed a bin of cash and ran off, past the AMC movie theater ticket booth, and away from the Levee, according to Dennis McCarthy of the Newport Police Department.
The police department is releasing photos of the suspects and those will be posted here as soon as they are received.
