Dacula Man Says He Was Robbed in Regions Bank Parking Lot
No one injured during the Sept. 29 incident.
A Dacula man said he was robbed of $1,300 in the parking lot of the Regions Bank on Gravel Springs Road shortly before 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29.
The man told police he had just withdrawn $1,375 from his bank and had all but $75 of it in a Regions Bank envelope. According to the man, he was about to get into his car when someone approached him from behind, placed what felt like the barrel of a gun in the small of his back and demanded the money.
The suspect reportedly ordered the man not to turn around and instructed him to hand over the envelope. The man said he handed the envelope backwards toward the suspect and then heard him run away. After waiting several seconds, the man turned around and saw a black passenger car driving away from the area towards which he had heard the male running.
The man was unable to provide a make or model for the vehicle and could not provide a physical description of the robbery suspect.
Regions Bank does not have surveillance cameras covering the area of the parking lot in which the robbery reportedly occurred. The investigating officer also reviewed surveillance footage at a nearby business, but did not see any black passenger vehicles pass through the parking lot during the time frame of the robbery.
The case is listed as active.
