    This is really scary. I live about 10 minutes away from this place. This is the bank we ALWAYS use, they even know us by name. Some really great people work there. So glad no one was hurt and I really hope they catch these guys. I'm definitely going to have a different feeling walking in there now...

    Wonder what a vehicle has to do to be suspicious?

    I watched a FBI show recently about a bank robber who used the 'gun in each hand' method. Very, very uncommon.

    LOOKS LIKE THEY WOULD HAVE RELEASED SUSPECT DESCRIPTION FOR PUBLIC TO BE ON LOOK OUT, BUT I SUPPOSE THEY DON'T WANT PUBLIC'S HELP, THEY ARE PROBABLY LONE GONE BY NOW, BUT DO HOPE THEY GET CAUGHT.

    Not much room in Newton Grove to be "at large."
