Bank robbers still at large

August 14, 2003|EMILY BURTON

Police have made no arrests and have no suspects one day after a two-man team attempted an armed robbery of First Southern National Bank in Stanford Wednesday morning.

According to police reports, the robbery occurred as a bank employee was arriving for work. The two men followed her into the bank. Inside the bank, she put in place a signal to warn other employees of the robbery. An arriving co-worker saw the signal and used a cell phone to call for help. One employee was injured during the robbery when she fell while trying to run, though she was not transported by EMS from the scene.

Having apparently approached the bank on foot, the suspects later escaped in a bank employee's 2001 Chevrolet Malibu.

The car was found soon after, abandoned in a field on the corner of U.S. 150 and Goshen Cutoff. Police think the pair might have driven away in a second vehicle.

"We can assume that, but we have no physical evidence supporting it," said Detective Sgt. Steven Owen, supervising officer on the scene.

First Southern National bank spokesman Calvin Denham would not say if any money had been taken.

"I've been instructed to make no comment," said Denham.
