Williston police investigators will be interviewing three drug suspects this week about an armed robbery at an ATM on Friday night.

Sgt. James Bond said the hold-up happened at about 8 p.m. at the Capital City Bank ATM on U.S. 27. The drug suspects were arrested about a half-hour later, according to Bond, and had a gun in the car with them.

A woman told police she was robbed at gunpoint after using the ATM. Bond said the camera on the ATM photographed the woman and a gun-carrying black man dressed in a black hoodie, black pants and black shoes.

Bond said the man had a large nose with a high ridge and what appeared to be significant acne scars on both cheeks. The man also was carrying a handgun.

In addition to questioning the men being held on marijuana and cocaine charges, Bond said the victim would be talking to police again to help provide additional details about the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call Williston police at 528-4991.
