Metro needs public's help to nab 2 alleged armored truck robbers

LAS VEGAS - Two brazen thieves ripped off an armored truck earlier this month, and now Metro Police needs the public's help to find them.

The first robbery happened on July 5 while the armored truck was making a pick-up at a business located in the 400 block of East Silverado Ranch.

According to officers, two suspects armed with handguns approached the guard and demanded the cash bags as he was leaving the business. 

Once they received them they fled on foot, police said.

On June 6, another armored truck was making a pick-up at a different business, this one located in the 5300 block of South Fort Apache Road, and as the guard exited the business, a newer white 4-door sedan, occupied by two unknown black men, drove up to the victim.

Police said one of the suspects got out of the car, showed a handgun and demanded the guard hand over the money bags.

After they grabbed the cash, the suspects drove away from the area, but the direction they fled in is unknown.

The first suspect is described as a black man around 6-feet 4-inches tall, with a dark complexion and a heavy build.

The second suspect is described as a black man who's 5-inches 9-feet tall, with an athletic build.

Metro released surveillance video of the events.
