— Three armed men robbed a bank in Vass late Friday afternoon, said the Moore County Sheriff's Office.

Three men entered the First Bank branch and pulled out handguns shortly after 5 p.m., said sheriff's deputies.

Surveillance footage shows them forcing the teller to give them money at gunpoint.

The men fled in a dark green Mazda Protege, which was found abandoned about 5 miles from the bank. Deputies said the Protege had been reported as stolen from Robeson County.

Anyone with information about the bank robbery is asked to call the Moore County Sheriff's Office at 910-947-2931.
