Armed robber steals $61,000 from armored car at Toys R US

SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Police are looking for a suspect after an armored car security guard was robbed at the Sycamore Township Toys R Us Friday afternoon while making a cash pick up.

Hamilton County dispatchers say the suspect got away with a bag containing tens of thousands of dollars.

The robbery happened at around 12:41 p.m.

According to reports, the Garda security guard entered the secure cash room of Toys R Us to make a cash pick up.  As the security guard exited the secure door of the cash room an unknown male black suspect shoved a handgun in his face, ordered him to his knees, grabbed the blue Garda cash bag, and walked out the front door of the store. 

The manager of the Toys R Us says the suspect took off with $61,000 and $8,000 in checks.

The suspect fled on foot and was last seen crossing the parking lot and heading toward Interstate 71.

The other Garda security guard had remained in the armored truck and did not observe the suspect leaving the store. 

No one was injured during the robbery.

The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 6'0", medium build, medium complexion, scruffy looking, wearing a black hoodie, khaki pants, Timberland style work boots, sunglasses and carrying a revolver.

Customers are not being let inside the store, but they are being let out.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
