CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
The suspects got away with more than $5,000 in cash, and on Monday night Troutman police believe that robber actually began hours earlier in Charlotte. Police said the men successfully pulled off a daring robbery early Monday morning and authorities believe the men knew exactly what they were doing. In surveillance video, two men can be seen. One man is wearing a baseball cap and the other a hoodie casually walk into the Bank of America on Main Street. The first robber with a brown patch under his eye pulled out a gun and demanded money from the teller – he even jumped on the counter, himself and grabbed the cash. Now police are trying to catch the two men, and it may be difficult because it seems that they are sticking to a major highway, Interstate 77.
Authorities say the men fled the area in a gray Buick Century that was reported stolen to Charlotte - Mecklenburg Police Department around 5:30 AM this morning.
The Buick was located in Statesville NC on the south bound on ramp of I-77 at exit 49A. They say the suspects had a vehicle waiting there or stole another one.
The State Highway Patrol saw a silver Honda Accord in that same area earlier Monday morning. Police said their crime is actually started in Charlotte with a stolen car. Then the men headed north to Troutman for the robbery and then ditched the stolen car even further north in Statesville. After that, police lost track of them. Troutman police believe the suspects may also be connected to another bank robbery out of Concord.
