Troup Bank Robbery

Police are still looking for two armed robbers who held up an East Texas bank this afternoon.

It happened at Austin Bank on Highway 110 in Troup around noon.

We're told two armed black men barged into the bank, pointing guns at the tellers and demanding money. The tellers handed over the cash, and within about 60 seconds, we're told the robbers left the building in a stolen, red SUV.

A few hours later, two Cherokee County Sheriff's deputies found the SUV ditched in the woods just around the corner from the robbery.

Investigators believe this robbery could be connected to a string of other unsolved robberies that have occurred since 2004.
