[UPDATE] Tallahassee State Bank Robbery

UPDATE 11.17.2010 6:55pm by Julie Montanaro

The hunt is on for a trio of bank robbers and their gold getaway car.

The heist happened at the Tallahassee State Bank near the corner of Capital Circle NE and Capital Medical Boulevard at about 9:45 this morning.

Police tell us two men went inside and held up a teller at gunpoint while a third man waited outside.

The men did leave a trail of clues behind. Crime scene investigators measured and photographed some footprints on the sidewalk nearby.

They also recovered a black backpack in the rear parking lot of the Towne Place Suites next door. That parking lot stretches all the way to Care Drive and the men may have made their getaway there.

Police have only a vague description of the culprits: three black men in dark clothing.

The bank surveillance photo posted with this story shows one of the men with a gun in his hand and an open back pack on the counter.

If you recognize him, saw that gold sedan, or have any information about the robbery, please call Crime Stoppers at 850-574-TIPS.
