Pasco Police in Search of “Skinny” ATM Armed Robber
Pasco Police and K9-Brit are on the hunt for an armed robber who hit up the HAPO Drive-Through Saturday night near the Red Lion Hotel on North 20th Avenue.
It was definitely a scary situation for a family at a local ATM cash machine.
The male victim reports he was with his family in their vehicle at about 11:30 pm to make a cash withdrawal from the ATM. After the transaction was made, the armed male approached the vehicle from behind. The robber pointed a black semi-automatic pistol at the victim and demanded everything he had in his possession.
The victim and his family were able to escape after he threw what cash he had to the ground. The robber fired two shots. However, there was no damage to the victim's vehicle. Two shell casings were found at the scene of the HAPO drive-through location.
The robber is described as a "skinny" white male, about 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was wearing a black hoody.
K9 Brit was able to track the suspect's scent east to the golf course where the K9 lost the scent.
