Dollar Tree employees robbed while making cash bank deposit

Two women were robbed Wednesday morning after attempting to make a cash deposit at the Wells Fargo branch on Jefferson Street, police say.

The Dollar Tree employees crossed Jefferson to make a cash deposit for the store shortly before 8 a.m., according to the Napa Police Department. A masked man confronted them at the east side of the bank and demanded their money, police say.

They refused. He pulled a semi-automatic handgun from his waistband, took their money, ran through the parking lot and headed west on Claremont Way, police say.

Officers and police dogs searched the area but did not find anything, police say. The investigation is ongoing
