GRANADA HILLS (CBSLA.com) — A $15,000 reward was offered Monday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a man who robbed a Brinks armored car in Granada Hills last month.
The FBI and Brinks are offering $10,000 and $5,000, respectively, in connection with a robbery that happened at about 11:08 a.m. on March 29 at the Zelzah Town Center in Granada Hills.
The guard had been walking back to the truck after collecting money from a CVS store when a man took out a black object resembling a handgun and pointed it at him, according to the FBI.
The robber demanded the money and the guard’s firearm, and then fled along the store fronts, out of the shopping center and into a waiting car, possibly a gray Volkswagen Jetta or Passat with paper plates.
The robber was described as a white or Hispanic man, between 6-foot-1 and 6-foot-2, about 160 pounds, between 20 and 25 years old, with a slim build. He wore a light gray “hoodie” with large blue horizontal stripes, white shirt, dark blue jeans, tennis shoes and a black backpack.
Anyone with information about the robbery can contact their nearest FBI office or call 911.
