Last week, Asheville police reported that a fourth robbery over the past few weeks had taken place at the Wachovia teller machine at 2373 Hendersonville Road, so I had to go see for myself. Four robberies? Some of them armed robberies? What’s going on?
The location is way down at the seedy end of H’ville Road, south of Bed Time Stories, where there’s a more industrial feel than the shopping center strips on H’ville Road closer to Asheville. I noticed that there is a large wooded area to the rear of the bank, where a robber could run and hide. I was there in daylight, so I didn’t note the lighting situation. I didn’t see any external security cameras, though I’m pretty sure all these teller machines have built-in cameras.
So why does this location keep getting hit? I don’t know, but I’d stay away from it at night, if I were you.
I’ll post more photos of the location a little later today.
