According to Sergeant Roy Harsh of the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, the bank robbery occurred when two females handed a teller a note and one woman showed a gun that she had in her sleeve. They left with an unspecified amount of money. During the time of the robbery, the bank was open and one customer was inside. The robbery was quick and very low-key and the customer inside the bank did not even note that it was going on. The two allegedly took the note back and swiftly left the bank with the money in a bag. Police believe that the two suspects climbed into a getaway car with a possible West Virginia registration. The sheriffs department says they used some of the money to pay $750 in back due rent. According to investigators, there is a possibility of more arrests in the case (McMillion, 2009).
