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.

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.
