Jacksonville police Chief Tommy Thompson said officers were still searching for the three men suspected of robbing a Wells Fargo at gunpoint Wednesday morning. Thompson said he believes the men are from Gadsden and are suspected of robbing a bank in the DeKalb County town of Powell in March.
Police Thursday were still reviewing surveillance video from the Jacksonville bank and nearby businesses. Friday the multi-agent investigation continued with the Jacksonville Police Department, the Gadsden Police Department and the the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The chief said the bank reported to police how much money the three men stole, but he would not release the figure.
“It was not a great deal of money,” Thompson said.
The robbery took place around 9 a.m. at the Wells Fargo bank on Pelham Road. Thompson said three men armed with semi-automatic handguns demanded money from the tellers. The three men drove away from the bank in a gray Chevrolet Caprice Classic, Thompson said, which was reported stolen Tuesday in Gadsden.
The suspects abandoned the car on Church Avenue and got into another vehicle driven by a fourth person.
Thompson said he expected the investigation to reach a “successful conclusion.”
