According to Troy police, they were called to Wattles Elementary on Ellenboro Drive after the driver of the armored truck was pepper sprayed and the thieves robbed the truck of its contents.

Police said it's not uncommon for an armored truck to be at the elementary school to pick up items but did not elaborate what may have been inside the truck that the thieves wanted.

Investigators say two suspects pepper sprayed the driver and then robbed the armored truck. Police said the truck was not stolen.
