Eye-witness accounts are beginning to come in.
An hour or so ago, Dave reported that he received a tip that the Wells Fargo location in downtown Decatur had been robbed around 1:30p this afternoon. I sent a note into Decatur PD and while waiting on a reply I received this report from Clark…
I am guessing the Decatur Wells Fargo on East Ponce was robbed late this morning; 6 police cars with blue lights blinking parked curbside and branch closed “temporarily for an emergency” police and detectives inside the closed branch at noon, and yellow crime scene tape at one of the teller windows.
You may recall back in July, this branch – then a Wachovia – was the scene of a failed robbery attempt. We’ll have to wait on official word to see if the crooks were successful this time.
