Police seek suspect in robbery at Peachtree Corners bank
Gwinnett County police are seeking the public’s help in finding the person who tied up and robbed a Piedmont Bank employee after attempting to rob the Peachtree Corners bank on Thursday morning.
Police Cpl. Deon Washington said the man pulled a gun on the employee at about 6:45 a.m., as she was opening the door to the bank, which is located at 5100 Peachtree Parkway. The man ordered the employee to open the bank vault without setting off the bank’s alarms, Washington added.
“The employee told the suspect that she did not have the access codes to the vault,” Washington said in a statement. “After tying the employee up and leaving her in the restroom, he took her purse that contained her cell phone and personal cash. The suspect later walked out of the bank and got into the backseat of a silver Jeep Liberty.”
Washington said the man did not take any money from the bank itself, but police later found what they believe was the vehicle he got into. It was stolen in Atlanta and found at an apartment complex near the bank, he said. Crime scene investigators are processing it to look for evidence.
Police have not yet secured a photo of the suspect, but Washington said he is described as a black man who was more than six-feet tall and weighed about 220 pounds.
Any person who has information about the robbery is asked to call the police department’s Criminal Investigations unit at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Tipsters can also submit information oncrimestoppersatlanta.org. A person can be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000 if their information leads to an arrest and indictment.
The case number people should use when submitting a tip is 16-062590.
