Thomasville Police are looking for two men who attempted to rob a store, scaring customers and clerks.
Lee County- Two men stormed into Colony Bank. Nobody was injured in the robbery, but the robbers ordered the employees to get on the ground.
The robbers entered the bank about 3:30PM, without even using masks. The man wearing a dress shirt jumped the counter with a revolver. He appeared to be in his early fifties.
His accomplice wore sunglasses, a sweatshirt, and jeans. He is about 6' 3" and is about 40 years old. He carried a semi-automatic pistol. He went into the bank's vault.
The amount of money stolen was not revealed.
Children were playing at the Wee Kare daycare center when the robbery occurred. The children and worker there were understandably upset by the robbery.
"It's very scary," said Denise King. " Knowing something like that could happen in the middle of the day. With children on the playground, that people don't have any more consideration than to rob a bank next door. I have two children of my own who were on the playground at the time. And very many more that I love. It's terrifying."
The getaway car is described as an older model tan car with a Tennessee tag. The car is possibly a Buick. The men headed East on U.S. 19.
If you have any information, you're urged to call The Lee County Sheriff's Department.
