HOUSTON - The FBI Violent Crime Task Force is looking to the public for information regarding two robberies of Loomis armored cars within the past month.

Investigators said the first robbery happened about 6 a.m. Aug. 13, outside the Chase Bank at 11029 Shadow Creek Parkway in Pearland. Investigators said an armored car was servicing an ATM when two men drove up behind the courier in a brown sedan. The men then left the vehicle and pointed a handgun at the courier and demanded money. The two men drove off in the brown sedan with an undisclosed amount of money.

No one was hurt during the incident. 

“The robbers are described as two black males, approximately 6 feet, 1 inch tall with slim builds," authorities said.
