Search continues for Valdosta bank robbers

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A Valdosta Bank Manager, shot in a holdup Friday, returned to work Wednesday. But the search for the three bank robbers continues.  

This is a picture from a surveillance camera inside the Citizen's Community Bank on Baytree Road. That's bank manager Zeke Dorsey moments before he was shot in the leg.

The robbers wore ski masks and took off in a white SUV. Police say bank employees handled the holdup well.  

"If people come into your bank or your facility and rob it like these guys did, it's not worth trying to fight them," said Valdosta Police Cmdr. Eugene Bell. "It's not worth not giving them money. Give them what they want, and let them get out of there-- that's the best thing to do."   

Police believe the robbers are likely in South Georgia or North Florida, and ask anyone with information to contact the police.
