New photos released of bank robbers

We have new surveillance photos Friday of those dangerous Valdosta bank robbers who are still on the run.

Investigators think the robbers are three siblings who also fired 20 gunshots at a Florida police officer.

That happened five hours before the Certus Bank in Valdosta was robbed Tuesday.

Investigators have no idea where those robbers are right now, but they're anxious to get them behind bars.

These are new surveillance photos we got in Friday from investigators. They show the three robbers walking in the Certus Bank on Norman Drive Tuesday afternoon. One of them carries in a bag. Investigators suspect the sister and the other brother carried an assault rifle and a machine pistol. Police say they each fired one shot inside the bank. Customers and employees were told to get down.

"It doesn't feel like it's safe to be anywhere," said Valdosta resident Jamie Radoescu.

Police say this man leaped over the counter and took money. Police believe the suspects are Lee Grace and Ryan Edward Doughtery and Dylan Dougherty Stanley, all in their 20's and all from the Tampa area. Around seven that same morning investigators say they fired shots at a Zephyrhills, Florida officer. We showed some folks photos of the suspects.

"It's really sad they look like normal kids," said Radoescu.

Valdosta Police Commander Brian Childress says the robbers are extremely dangerous.

"We want to get them in custody before they hurt someone or hurt themselves," said Cmdr. Childress.

Investigators believe the robbers left in this white four door 2006 Subaru Impreza with a New York tag. If you've seen this car or the suspects, call 9-1-1.

A janitor found some gun parts in a trash bag at the Tampa International Airport Wednesday.

Investigators are trying to figure out if that's related to these siblings.

Their mother is urging them to surrender.
