Local law enforcement officers are searching for two suspects believed to be armed and dangerous and responsible for the robbery of the BB&T bank in Newton Grove.
The pair, both described as black males — one 5 foot 9 inches tall, the other 5 foot 6 inches tall — walked into the bank around 9:13 this morning, brandishing weapons and demanding money from the tellers.
Although details are sketchy, the two suspects fled the bank on foot, heading toward the Dollar General Store. Law enforcement officers had surrounded the bank, with some continuing the investigation on site while others are out searching for the two men.
No one was injured in the incident.
