December 27, 2010|By Jonathan Pitts, The Baltimore Sun

Howard County police are seeking a suspect who robbed an armored truck employee in Ellicott City early Monday afternoon.

The employee, a carrier for Dunbar Armored, had just picked up a deposit from the Giant grocery store in the Dorsey's Search Village Center and was returning to the truck at about 12:42 p.m. when a lone gunman approached, stole the deposit and fled in a Nissan Sentra, police said.

Neither the carrier nor a second employee, who remained in the truck, was injured, according to police.

The car was later found in a nearby residential area.

Police are withholding the amount stolen in the incident, citing an ongoing investigation, and ask anyone with information on the robbery to call 410-313-7867. There is a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the gunman's identification and arrest. Callers may remain anonymous.
