Western Union Robbed in Bryan

An armed robber was still at large Thursday after holding up a Bryan Western Union.

Around 7:45 Thursday morning, a black man wearing a bandana on his face, wind breaker and baggy blue jeans pulled a gun on two employees at the Dunn Street location.

He fled with an undetermined amount of cash.

The two employees locked themselves in a back office until police arrived.

This isn't the first time that particular Western Union has been hit.

In May 2003, three men robbed the store, shooting a clerk in the leg before fleeing with wallets and money.

The heist turned into a shootout with police, with one of the robbers firing at a Bryan officer.

Two of the men are serving prison time, while the getaway driver is on probation.
