NEW YORK - Police are searching for a man who made off with $330,000 cash and a security guard's gun after an armored-car heist in Manhattan.

The guard and a driver with Dunbar Armored were making a drop at an M&T Bank branch yesterday morning.

Police say the guard went into the vestibule of the bank and noticed a man in a gray hooded sweat shirt near an automated teller machine. As she went to the bank entrance he pounced from behind, put his arm around her chest and grabbed her handgun.

The guard dropped a nylon bag with the cash inside.

The man grabbed the bag, threw the gun in it and ran away.

The guard ran into the bank and called police. *
