Kryptos 2014 Challenge 1

We found a scrap of paper tucked inside the wallet of Blaise Pascal (clearly an alias) who we feel is a junior member of a team planning an armored car robbery.  We think that this note will give us the time and location of the planned heist, but the text is so short we have not been successful with the usual methods of frequency analysis.  We weren’t expecting a very complicated cipher, but maybe this gang is more sophisticated than we originally thought.  We expect the robbery to occur within the next few days, so if you can give us any help ASAP that would be great.
