Three men robbed a Wachovia bank on Edwards Mill Road on Monday. From the Raleigh Police Department:
“Shortly before 10 a.m. today three suspects entered the Wachovia bank at 3301 Edwards Mill Road and committed a robbery. The three suspects were believed by witnesses to be black males. Each had his face and head covered. At least one of the suspects was armed with a handgun. In the attached surveillance photo the suspects are the individuals seen on the left, the right and the second from the right. The fourth individual in the photo (second from the left) is not a suspect. After the robbery, the suspects fled in a gray-green 1996 Toyota 4Runner. That vehicle was located a short time later in a Harris Teeter store parking lot in the 31 hundred block of Edwards Mill Road. It had been reported stolen in S.C. It is likely that the suspects switched vehicles in the Harris Teeter parking lot, and anyone who may have witnessed the suspects there is asked to contact the Raleigh Police Department’s Detective Division at (919) 996-3555.”
