Russell Co. Sheriff's Office offers $10,000 reward in search for bank robbers

Authorities are searching for the two armed men who robbed the Hurtsboro, Ala., Auburn bank Monday morning.

The Russell County Sheriff’s Office is offering a $10,000 reward for “any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of persons responsible for the armed robbery,” according to a Facebook post the agency posted Tuesday. “We’re working the case, and of course, the FBI is working it with us,” Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor said. “Hopefully somebody that knows something about it will give us a call.”

Armed with handguns, the masked men went in the bank at 312 Main St. around 11:10 a.m. and demanded that everyone inside get on the floor, Taylor said. About two or three bank employees and at least one customer were in the business at the time.

The men took an undisclosed amount of money, he said.

A detailed description of the suspects is not available at this time, but the robbers fled the scene in what authorities believe was an older model Ford Mustang with white writing on the back that read “Mustang.” They were last seen heading toward Bullock County, Ala.
