Photos Of Bank Robbers Released

Greenville police late Tuesday afternoon released bank surveillance pictures of two men who held up the First South Bank on Fire Tower Road.

The two robbers both had masks over their faces. One of the robbers is described as a black man, 5’10 to 6’00” in height with a thin build. The other is also a black man, 5’9” to 6’ with a muscular build.

Police are also looking for a customer who was inside the bank just prior to the robbery. They say he might be able to give police additional information about the case.

Previous Story

One of two robbers who held up a Greenville bank Monday afternoon was wearing plaid pajama pants.

Greenville police say the First South Bank on East Fire Tower Road was robbed at gunpoint around 2:50 p.m.

Captain Ted Sauls says two black men between 5'10" and 6'2" tall came into the bank. One of the robbers was wearing a yellow shirt, while the other one had on plaid pajama pants and a red bandanna. Sauls says a black handgun was shown during robbery.

No one was hurt in the holdup and witnesses say the two robbers ran toward the Bell Meade Apartments, which is across from Covenant Church.

Sauls says officers and K-9 units are searching areas around the bank. Police asked a nearby daycare to bring children inside as a precaution and Sauls says another concern was children getting off school buses in the area.

    To Mike, Thanks for proving my point. I guess all blacks look alike. Clearly, the robber has a stout build, muscular trapezius (traps)and about 25 lbs bigger than the CUSTOMER. Oh and the shirts are clearly different. The CUSTOMER has on a SHORT-SLEEVED POLO KNIT SHIRT, and the robber has on a long-sleeve. So, how are they possibly the same? Builds are clearly different and shirts are nowhere similar, except for their brightness.... on a black and white image. What an idiotic comment.

    I wonder if the NAACP will support these two criminals as well and blame the bank for racism!?!

    they didn't rob a bank in 'da hood', they robbed one on a busy road, in a decent neighborhood, in the middle of the day, and got away on foot. you want to control crime, PRICE THEM OUT. raise the rents so they can't pay them. where i grew up, that's what the politicians did. the losers were financially quarantined to one part of the county. every other part was beyond the reach of their Section 8 housing allowance. if you can't afford to pay the rent in the area and you don't work in the area, you have no business being in the area. sadly, it's a college town so, they price the apts so that college students can afford them. if students working PT (even with help from their parents) can afford it so, can people getting housing subsidies. it's a Catch 22.

    I believe that First South Bank could have a better security camera system than that. How are you supposed to identify anyone off of those photos. Thankfully noone was injured!
