• Daytona Beach police investigating second ATM robbery


    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Police in Daytona Beach are investigating a second ATM hold-up in a week.

    A victim was held up at a Wells Fargo bank on White Street Friday morning.

    Mike Morris was depositing his paycheck at the ATM after getting off work late around 2 a.m. when he said a young man in a gray hoodie walked up behind him with a small silver handgun.

    When Morris turned around, he said the robber demanded he withdraw $300.

    Morris said he handed over the cash and then the robber demanded even more money.

    Morris opened his wallet, pulled out $9 and handed that over, too.

    Then the Morris said the robber took off on foot.

    Last Thursday, two armed men pulled guns at a nearby Bank of America on International Speedway Boulevard.

    They're described as slightly shorter than the suspect in the Wells Fargo robbery, but investigators are looking to see if the cases could be linked.

    Morris said he is just glad he didn't get shot.

    "He's got a little silver hand gun pointed right at me, says, "You're going to give me your money now, going to get another $300 out of the bank,'" Morris said.

    Morris said the bank has already promised to reimburse him for the $300.

    Police said the robber did leave a piece of evidence at the scene.
