A man apparently stole a motorist’s debit card in a roadside robbery near Larchwood in the early morning hours Monday.
The Lyon County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a robbery which occurred on county road A18 near Arthur Avenue, or five and a half miles west of the south side of Larchwood. It happened at about 1:25 AM.
The victim was eastbound on A18 when he approached a dark red Ford SUV with its hazard lights activated. The SUV had no license plates on it but did have a paper plate in the rear window . A female subject was standing behind the SUV waiving for the victim to stop. The victim did stop and asked what the problem was. A male subject then came from behind the victim’s vehicle and approached the driver’s window where he took the victim’s debit card. The male and female then entered the Ford SUV and left the scene.
