Pair Sought in Armed Raleigh Bank Heist

Posted January 30, 2007

— Police are looking for two men who used handguns to hold up a Wachovia bank branch on Creedmoor Road on Tuesday afternoon.

The pair entered the bank shortly after 3 p.m. and announced a robbery, police said. Both suspects wore masks and both carried handguns.

One of the suspects demanded money from a teller, who complied with his orders, police said. The two then fled the bank.

One suspect was described as a white male wearing a black mask, red jacket, dark blue hood, and brown shoes.

Police said the second suspect wore a black mask, brown jacket, green and red hood, light-colored shirt with a face printed its front, and dark pants. They did not know his race, they said, and they gave no information about the men's heights or weights.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call the Raleigh Police Department’s Detective Division at 919-890-3555 or CrimeStoppers at 919-226-2746.

    These are bold individuals that will strike again. If you are ever in a bank and it is announced that it is a robbery, you should follow the demands of the robber in charge or you could be a target of their vengance.
    Additionally, you should not do anything until they leave or it is safe to do so without drawing attention to yourself. Be sure to call 911 immediately following the robbery or during the robbery if life is at stake. I would venture to say if you were in a robbery you should stay calm and don't do anything to upset/distract the robbers. Be a quiet witness to what happens.
