— Police were looking for two suspects in a Tuesday afternoon armed robbery of First Bank in Maxton.

Just after 4 p.m. two men entered First Bank, at 107 W. Central St. Both suspects had handguns and demanded money from the tellers, police said.

Tellers placed an undisclosed amount of money into a small, black, nylon bag. The suspects were then seen leaving in what appeared to be a burgundy, four-door sedan, possibly a Ford Taurus.

The first suspect was described as a black man, approximately 6 feet tall. He was last seen wearing light gray overalls that appeared to have paint stains on them, a white t-shirt and dark hat. He had a goatee and mustache.

The second suspect was described as a black man, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall. He was last seen wearing dark blue or black overalls that also appeared to have paint stains on them. The suspect was also wearing a hat, possibly camouflaged, with bright-colored writing on the front. He was also wearing a black rag on his head.

If you have any information on this case, please contact Lt. Jamie Oxendine with the Maxton Police Department at 910-844-5667 or the tip line at 910-844-4000.

    And when these "gentlemen" are found I assume they will have had no prior convictions and were robing the place just to buy food to feed their poor starving children and put to gas into their cars just so they could get to work.
