N. Fayetteville SunTrust bank robbed

Fayetteville Police are investigating a bank robbery that occurred just before 2:30 this afternoon at the SunTrust bank near the Fayette Pavilion off Ga. Highway 85 and Ellis Road.

For a gallery of bank robber photos, click here.

A gunman entered the bank with a handgun and left in what was believed to be an older model maroon Chevy Impala with dark-tinted windows, according to initial police radio accounts of the scene.

The gunman was described as a light-skinned black male wearing a “wife beater” T-shirt, about 5’8” tall, about 150 pounds, wearing a yellow construction helmet with a red bandanna underneath. He left the scene with another suspect in the vehicle, but the second suspect’s description was not immediately available.

No injuries were reported at the scene, police said.

Police have searched the parking lots at the Pavilion in an effort to locate the suspects. They also are investigating if a crash just north of the bank on Hwy. 85 might be related to the bank robbery, as one of the suspects took off from the wreck on foot but was arrested shortly thereafter.

This is the second bank robbery in Fayetteville within a week. The RBC Centura Bank on Ga. Highway 314 north was hit by a crew of three armed gunmen July 8 just after 10 a.m., and they got away in a blue sport utility vehicle, police said.

Who wants to take bets on the county of origin on the vehicle's license plate? Our little town is just going in the wrong direction. Very sad.

Let us not forget our "friends" in Fulton, DeKalb, and Henry Counties. Cesspools like Clayton and Fulton have a bad habit of growing. But never fear! The FBI says that crime and murders are dramatically down in the greater metro area.

Still ...... I'm not taking your bet on this one.

And to think, our tax dollars have paid for the baby mommas to produce these thugs by the millions. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy that we're helping the "most vulnerable members of our society", doesn't it?

The only way this is going to stop is if we start sending them to the morgue in body bags. Shoot first -ask questions later.

Will you issue the guns to the ladies at all of the banks?

I don't think those banks have very much money worth lives.

Let the cops do what they get paid to do!

If you are going to do an armed robbery on a hot summer day, you may as well be dressed as comfortably as possible.

Well if he had the need to go comfortable on a hot summer day I guess he could wear one of these:

Taking a little lunch time bank robbery break I suppose. Beats eating the food off the Roach Coaches doesn't it?

Someone should report this fellow for being out of uniform.

What happened to them?

We didn't used to need them.

of the year, most financial institutions in Fayetteville had a guard at the entrance or on site . Why was this discontinued? Anyone know?

PTC Observer's picture

because they thought they didn't need them.

Guess they need to go to surrounding communities to see how banking is done there.

We didn't used to need them.

I just loved Barney!! There was a guard at the BOA near the Pavilion that reminded me of him!.. He would open the door for you - and always seemed to be observing the area. There were other guards who were more intimidating, but they were always on the phone!

First one shot on the way in was the old asleep guard!

What little money they get wouldn't pay for one life lost!

Can't be stopped in a recession or a depression (bank robbery).

Let's see skinny and light skinned, wearing a wife beater T-shirt and a yellow construction helmet with a red bandanna...... Good gawd are the Village People getting back together again!!!!!

I want to be a macho man!!!!!

This is a perfect example of the stale and racist conservative attitudes that have made the citizen a cesspool of intellect-free opinion. Coming to the citizen is as much fun as playing in a stagnant pond these days.

1) Racist comments about any crime with a black picture attached? Check.

2) Ignore every molestation, murder, attempted murder, ponzi scheme, internet predator, or actual predator if his or her skin is white? Check.
(You guys obviously don't know who has committed the majority of actual murders, by a landslide, here in Fayco)

3) Blow a gasket about "The deficit"? Check.

4) Ignore the fact that we have deficit spent my entire lifetime (YES, including Reagan)? Check

5) Bash bad evil unions? Check

6) Ignore the fact that even Republican Jesus Ronald Reagan was a 6-term union president? Check. Check. Check.

7) Blame the "main stream media" (whatever that is)for being untrustworthy and biased? Check.

8) Lose interest in "media" stories when Rupert Murdoch's conglomorate is responsible for hacking the phone of a dead teen, exposing the medical records of a disable kids, hacking citizens' bank and personal records, and a whole host of yet to be discovered atrocities? Check.

And all the while those somewhat moderate conservatives whisper passed the graveyard while this site is turned into an epicenter of bitter, hateful people without an original idea between them.

I'm sure my *conservative friends will ease their collective conscience by calling me a bitter liberal. Here's the problem with that: I aint bitter. There isn't a conservative on the ticket that will beat our President. The Commander in Chief. They have gained optimism by only listening to echo chambers that don't give them a serious critique of the viability of their ideas (e.g. Not raising the debt ceiling when even the Paul Ryan budget they signed off on requires raising the debt ceiling.)

So, I am quite content to watch candidate Bachmann explain having worked in COLLECTIONS for the IRS, or accepting farm subsidies and then lying about it. Or her husband accepting Medicaide/Medicare and her lying about the amount.

I'm content to here Romney explain being a born again prolifer with Romney Care's personal mandate in his resume.

I don't mind hearing Herman Cain explain his complete misunderstanding of our wars in The Middle East, while he crafts the oath of allegiance he will only require Muslem Americans to take before working in his administration.

I'm not disgruntled. I'm sad for my *conservative friends who fail to critically wuestion the racist statements of their fellow *conservatives; who fail to hold their fellow *conservatives to a minimum standard of honesty.

You are left with indefensible positions and statements; stuck in a cesspool.

And you'll still be there when Barack and Michelle begin year 5 in the White House.

Now then, load your missives. "Damn the Torpedos, Full Speed Ahead."

I asked some questions AGAIN of Hutch and any *conservative who dares speak for republican ideas or racial selective blindness. Feel free to ignore them AGAIN. But, perhaps, for a drastic change, you might veer from platitudes and actually express an idea here which one can sink their teeth into. Or you can find solice in the memory of the last congressional election. Suits me either way. But jus remember: The GOP mantra last election was "jobs, jobs, jobs." their efforts, however, have been Unions, abortion, and re-election. Hard to reconcile the disparity.

and those like you is that you really believe the bilge you pump out.

If the Conservative/Republican party was so wrong and so bad then 2010 would have come out differently and that's a fact. The fact is after 2008 America had 2 years of Democrat rule and found it lacking. So they sent a message. Obama has done nothing to address this simple fact.

Even if Obama makes it through the next cycle the fact that the Republicans will keep the House and maybe the Senate President Obama will be not much more than an eunuch.

Please tell me this isn't a revelation for you :-). Time will tell my friend. Maybe the race of criminals should be accentuated. Maybe the super wealthy should not be asked to sacrifice with the medicaid, medicare, and social security recipients in our economic recovery. Maybe you'll take the senate in 2012 with the presidency. But I doubt it. Thanks for the honest commentary. Still a couple of good* conservatives in the world ;-)

'Black Racists' have been saying this is the goal of ALL white people for some time. Some here may vehemently deny this - because that is not the way that they feel. But we also hear from those who do feel that way - and sometimes that concept creeps into the discussion. (Joe Kawfi)

I don't do other people's work for them, but I'll give you a kick start.

National issues first: When anyone has suggested former President Bush be prosecuted for war crimes, I have ALWAYS vehemently disagreed. Locally, I have disagreed with the families (mother and father) of conservative bloggers being dragged into things; and I have voiced disapproval in colorful language on both sides which I personally felt crossed lines. You don't remember because you don't look for such things, but I actually initiated a blog in the last year of the Bush Presidency praising his recognition of Iraqi war casualties, and praising his ability to make light of himself when engaging in the goofiest ever African dance. Now, let's put the spotlight back where I had it: What's the body count of black perps in FAYCO and white perps? How honest have NEWSCORP's practices been? How does Michele Bachmann rail against taxes when she has received farm subsides, worked for the IRS, and benefited from Medicaid/Medicare cash? (Notice I didn't even address "gay barbarians"). How does Mitt square the personal mandate for healthcare he crafted with his words today? How does Herman Cain make only Muslem Americans take an oath of allegiance before they can work in his administration? How does Newt "Tiffany's" Gingrich talk economics to anyone while keeping a straight face? Hutch, if you are going to weigh in, then weigh in my friend. Your party is hurting, and bending the truth very liberally while doing it.

Ambition and selfishness has destroyed most of the politicians that I know about. Hypocrisy is rampant and is even considered necessary to get re-elected.

Statesmanship is surely down the drain. Even those who try to hold up the USA as a nation above the rabble have been engrossed into such schemes for power that we are now also considered non-viable!

Can you imagine the USA having their credit rating with the world destroyed, not due to the debt, but due to battles over empty coffee cups at the President's table, for re-election only?

Our communications and journalism quality have shrunk to total soap opera and slapstick. Taking sides is more important than facts or progress.

We now allow several TV cable stations to have full-time coverage of such garbage as court trials and Limbaugh to Hannity shows. And the sad part is they are "shows" and have nothing to do with either "news" or facts, and only one side is covered at all.

The right wing has been able to sell enough ads to dominate talk radio and the left wing has garnered working people, unions, teachers, universities, and such as that into their compound.

We are on our way to destruction by lack of real, intelligent, devoted, leaders of our heritage of both the working people and people of wealth.

Capitalism, religion, health care, our treasure, and our pride have disintegrated due to greed.

(have you heard the very latest? The Anthony Trial Judge (Perry)
is being hounded by a white lover!)(Newscorp-- (FOX here)- has had their top witch in England resign for extremely nasty and devious spying--FOX is being investigated by the FBI)

Surely soon, the Right will tell on the Left and they will also be investigated.

Was all of this started by a black man being elected President and it galled some so badly that by all means necesary, as they say in Atlanta schools, he and his kind must be eliminated at the next election, or before? It appears that way to me.

More and more Americans are beginning to arrive at the same conclusion. It's difficult to claim American 'unity' when we have failure of leadership that is exhibited by our Congress. It's sad that 'race' even is in the discussion in 2011. . . But as we have seen throughout the country - not just The Citizen - race has been used by some to denigrate this president. To deny this is pure folly. The message - re-election and party loyalty ; more important than the American people. Both parties IMO are guilty.

Yes it has. But to some degree that plays to Obama's favor. He can use that as a smokescreen when attacked. He can tell those that aren't intelligent enough to think for themselves that is why he's being attacked instead of being incompetent.

[quote]The message - re-election and party loyalty ; more important than the American people. Both parties IMO are guilty.[/quote]

Again you're correct. I believe that one reason the Reps are stalling this budget is because they want Obama's regime to miss payment on social security checks. That would be political suicide. I can see it now during the debates. The Rep candidate saying look at how much money Obama gave to Automakers and banks but he stiffs you. Regardless of your interpretation of that statement many Americans will take it at face value and Obama will be a goner. As you say neither side is looking at how it will hurt the American people. Only how it affects their party.

You can't use logic with an illogical person.

Am I to assume from this you're in favor of censorship, because that is certainly what it sounds like, or maybe just the one sided censorship, you know like only the conservatives should be censored. I thought free speech was one of our principles, maybe where you stand it's different. Then again, maybe in your world only the left has the right to an opinion.

roundabout wants to go back to the those awful days of the "Fairness Doctrine". I do remember those really boring early Sunday morning radio shows.

Caution - The Surgeon General has determined that constant blogging is an addiction that can cause a sedentary life style.

These cheap shows are "allowed" precisely because people like you, who have the same attitude as they, watch and listen to them! The more who watch, the more ads they can sell. Corporations have no principles or care about quality either, just sales.

I realize that censure is not warranted in these cases, what I am talking about is just what makes enough citizens like this obviously false stuff!

It actually resembles the Televangelists who get caught as terrible sinners, and only then are they dis-credited, but not even then by those who don't want to admit they were wasting their time.

There are still Nixon, Reagan, Hoover, Johnson, Cheney, and Bush, Jr. lovers among us! Quite hard to understand where they think this sort of person will aid the USA.

I am not interested. Maybe hutch would like to know!

Those witches on FOX and HLN are on 24 hours per day still trying the Anthony woman.
That will keep you busy!

Soon there will be Female lynch mobs in Orange county, FL, maybe you two ought to go poke it along!

Obviously our entire jury system has failed and we need to destroy it right away---all the judges have their sluts handy and regularly visit pick-up bars!
They turn people loose that juries have found not guilty for lack of evidence (Anthony, Simpson, Lohan, Nixon and others.

I do think vigilante justice would now work OK providing we kept those "others" from Atlanta and Orlando out of our County!

Will the courts shut down when Cantor and them shut off the money?
