Bank Robbed At Gunpoint

Authorities in Smith County say those responsible for a bank robbery Friday, are still on the loose.

It happened just after 10 a.m. at the "Citizens State Bank" on Hwy 64 West, about a mile outside the Loop. Investigators with the Sheriff's Department say two African American men drove up to the bank in a silver SUV. The men left the truck running, and went inside the bank, armed with shotguns and demanded money.

They got away with an undetermined amount of cash. The SUV used in the robbery was stolen earlier in the day from a local dealership, according to authorities.

Fortunately, no one was injured. If you have any information, you're asked to call the Smith County Sheriff's Department.
