UPDATED 5:45 P.M.

 

Police have arrested six suspects in the daylight robbery last month of a Brinks armored truck that was delivering money to the Oak Hollow branch of SunTrust bank.
Early this morning five search warrants were served at five different locations in High Point and Greensboro in the robbery in which shots were fired as suspects fled with stolen cash.
Six men were arrested, the High Point Police Department reports. The five suspects from Greensboro are: Hassan Ali, 25, 5 Saint Luke Court, John Griffin, 19, 523 Mobile St., Kelvin Jacobs, 24, 1523 Highland Ave., Hassan Hassan, 21, 2114 Colson St., and Rodney Allen Frazier, 25, 2107 Cheltenham Blvd. The other suspect from High Point is Ahmed Ali, 28, of 4083 Banbridge Drive.
The High Point and Greensboro police departments and FBI collaborated to solve the case. Each suspect has been charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery. All six are currently in the Guilford County Jail in High Point under a $1 million dollar bond each, High Point police report.
Law enforcement authorities say they will release more information today or Friday on the investigation.
The robbers staged a brazen theft from the armored truck in the SunTrust Bank parking lot the afternoon of July 25. The suspects fled in a hail of bullets with a bag of money that held $55,000 dollars in cash.
Two armed Brinks guards were unloading money from the armored truck. Two robbers walked to the back of the truck while two men drove to the front of the truck in a white Dodge van, police said at the time.
The men were armed with two handguns and a shotgun. Police recovered the shotgun later at the scene.
At some point during the robbery, the Brinks guards shot at the men. The men did not return fire.
The suspects jumped into a white Dodge Caravan and quickly crashed into the fence behind the bank on Countryside Drive.
Police believe the robbers jumped out of the van, which was stolen in Greensboro, and into two waiting sedans that were parked on Countryside Drive.
