Police Investigating Armed Robbery At U.S. Bank

Hopkinsville Police are on the lookout for a black male believed to have been involved in the armed robbery Tuesday morning of an armored vehicle that was servicing an ATM at the U.S. Bank branch on West 7th Street, in Hopkinsville. The News Edge spoke to Hopkinsville Police Chief Guy Howie on the scene.

The Charger had apparently backed into a parking spot behind the bank near the drive through to wait for the ATM Solutions armored vehicle to arrive. Sergeant Tyler DeArmond explained why Glass Avenue between North Drive and Evergreen Terrace was shut down for a short time in connection to the case.

The last appearance of the vehicle on surveillance cameras showed it turning right off of North Main on to the northern end of Eagle Way Bypass. Chief Howie says officers found an H&K pistol on the side of the road on the south bound entrance to the Pennyrile Parkway.

DeArmond says at this point, the best description they have of the suspect is a heavyset black male. Police are still on the lookout for the white Dodge Charger with dark tinted windows. If anyone has any information on the crime, they are encouraged to call 270-890-1500 and ask to speak to a detective or call Crime Stoppers at 270-887-TIPS.
