FBI investigating armored car holdup in New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The FBI is looking for a gunman who held up an armored car near Audubon Park and got away with a bag of money.
Spokesman Mary Beth Romig says the gunman forced his way into the Dunbar Armored vehicle at gunpoint Monday morning, when one of the two guards returned from a business on Broadway near Leake Avenue.
She says the man made the guards drive around the corner, then ran off with the bag. Officials don't know how much money it held.
A white garden-style hat covered his face. He also wore a long-sleeved blue shirt, dark pants, and white cloth gloves with rubber tips. He carried a black revolver. The only physical description is black, slim, about 6 feet tall, and in his mid-20s to early 30s.
