Two armed suspects are on the loose after a morning bank robbery in south Lubbock. This is the third bank robbery this year. The first happened on 50th and Slide at an ATM, the other on 34th and Memphis at the People's Bank. Both happened in July. The difference in this morning's robbery is that police are looking for two suspects.

Two suspects ran out the front door of the Plains Bell Federal Credit Union near 74th and Slide and left on foot according to bank employees. And now police are still searching for the men in the area.

Police got the call at 9:23 Wednesday morning that three employees were help up at gun-point by two men. No customers were inside at the time and no one was hurt. The bank did, however close for part of the day. The men took an unknown amount a money from a teller's drawer and also took a box from the vault.

Lt. Roy Bassett said, "As the suspects were leaving, they ordered two for the employees to lie down on the other side of the counter where they couldn't see which way they were going. One of them they did not make lie down, she was told to just stand there behind the counter. They left out the doors. Unknown direction of travel."

Police did find a maroon Grand AM in the alley-way behind the bank. The car was reported stolen, but police do not know if the car is related to the robbery.
