The Catoosa County Sheriff's Department said it has an ATM photo of one of two suspects in an armed robbery last Sunday in Rossville.

Deputies responded at 12:33 a.m. on West Circle Drive.

A woman said she had just finished using an ATM machine at a bank in Fort Oglethorpe when she noticed a vehicle following her. She said the vehicle followed her through the ATM lane and continued to follow her until it eventually bumped the rear of her vehicle.

Sheriff Gary Sisk said the woman later pulled over on West Circle Drive where two black males exited their vehicle, produced handguns, and robbed her.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery or the suspects involved is encouraged to contact the Catoosa County Sheriff’s Department at 706-935-2424.
