Clarksville bank robbed Thursday, FBI releases photos (UPDATE)
SoVaNow.com / June 27, 2013The Clarksville branch of Bank of America was the target of an armed robbery Thursday afternoon shortly before 2:00 p.m.
According to Acting Clarksville Police Chief, Bobby Boring, at 1:47 p.m., two black males, one tall and the other short, entered the Bank of America on Virginia Avenue brandishing pistols and demanding money from the tellers. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash, the two escaped in a newer model black pickup truck with an undisclosed amount of money. They were last seen heading east on Virginia Avenue away from town.
The Richmond office of the FBI, which has taken the lead in investigating the robbery, continues to be on the lookout for the two suspects. One robber is described as “a black male wearing a long-sleeved white shirt with a red and blue baseball hat with the word ‘Philadelphia’ possibly written on it. He was wearing black jeans, dark shoes, and had a section of red believed to be underwear visible below his shirt and above his pants in the rear. He is described as 6'1"- 6'2," weighing 200 to 225 pounds. He had a black mask covering his face except for his left eye.”
The second robber is described as “a black male wearing a long-sleeved white shirt with a dark head-and-face covering. He was wearing blue jeans and carrying a red and black backpack. He is described as between 5'6"- 5'8," weighing 150 to 165 pounds.”
The FBI believes the getaway vehicle that the suspects drove out of town may be a Ford F-150 truck. Images of the vehicle were captured by a security camera mounted outside at Lake Country Satellite.
The bank branch was closed in the immediate aftermath of the robbery, but opened the following day for business.
Anyone with information concerning the robbery is asked to contact the Richmond Office of the FBI at (804) 261-1044 or Patrolman Andy Elliott at the Clarksville Police Department at (434) 374-5743.
