Chesapeake Police are looking for a man who robbed a TitleMax in the 1100 block of Battlefield Boulevard on Thursday morning.

The man entered the business around 10:30 a.m. He was armed with a handgun and demanded money before fleeing.

Because B.M. Williams Primary School was nearby, it was placed on lockdown for approximately 10 minutes for safety purposes. There were no injuries.

Police say the case is under investigation. More information will be released as it becomes available.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
