The bank in the 3000 block of Lawrenceville Highway was held up around 9:30 a.m. last Friday when two men armed with a handgun and shotgun ordered tellers to fill a bag with money, according to police spokesman Cpl. Jake Smith. The suspects got away with $12,262.09 in cash and checks, authorities said.
After a brief chase by officers responding to the holdup, the suspects abandoned the Pontiac Grand Prix they used as a getaway car and fled into woods. The duo, however, left a bag with $10,422.08 in cash and checks, a handgun and a shotgun inside the vehicle, police said.
