At approximately mid-day today a sole heavily disguised gunman has approached a security guard within the premises of the BNZ Meadowlands.
The security guard was making a delivery and had entered the bank before he was approached.
The gunman, brandishing what has been described as a single sawn off shotgun, has demanded the cash canister from the guard.
The guard has complied and the offender has fled to a nearby awaiting vehicle being driven by a second person.
This vehicle, a dark blue Honda civic liftback has sped away from the scene and was located by Police a short distance away.
