HCSO seeks bank robbery suspects
SEBRING -- The Highlands County Sheriff's Office is looking for two men who robbed the Heartland National Bank at 5033 US 27 North near Tanglewood at around 10:15 a.m. Monday morning.
According to HCSO Public Information Officer Nell Hays, the two suspects, who covered their faces during the robbery, both displayed guns and fled on foot into the wooded area behind the bank. Investigators think they got into a vehicle in the area.
The suspects are both black males. One is 6 feet tall, 200-220 pounds, wearing a red shirt with a white tank top underneath it and black tennis shoes with white bottoms. The second suspect is also around 6 feet tall and thinner than his accomplice. He was wearing a brown short-sleeved shirt over a white long-sleeved shirt and faded blue jeans.
Anyone with information is asked to call the HCSO at 402-7250. Anyone who wishes to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward can contact Crimestoppers at 1800-226-TIPS (8477) or go online to www.heartlandcrimestoppers.com

You obviously don't know what you're talking about. There are many reasons why a track does not end with the capture of a suspect. They robbed a bank and you're assuming the only mode of transportation they had was their two feet?

It is about time to fence in the perimeter of the bank and install doble entry door wich can be locked by a teller leaving the robber caught in between ( bullet proof glass of course).

How about arming bank personnel and training them to shoo to kill robbers on the spot.

his face may have been covered, but you can clearly see him ... I can't believe his mother and/or friends aren't worried right about now ...
What...again? (by: foodforthought - 8/6/2012)
What's going on with this bank. I think it's time the bank hires an armed security guard.
