Two men rob Langley bank

AIKEN -- The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is searching for two men who were involved in the robbery of a Langley bank this afternoon and could be connected to a couple other robberies.

Capt. Troy Elwell said the men - one carrying an AK 47, the other brandishing a handgun - entered the Security Federal Bank on South Carolina Highway 421 at 1:17 p.m. demanding money.

Police say both men were dressed in black and wearing ski masks. One of the men was described as 6 feet tall and weighing 375 pounds. The other man was about 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 190 pounds. Capt. Elwell said the men left the area with an undisclosed amount of money in a gold Dodge Intrepid. He said authorities

have since found the Intrepid on Tutt Street. The vehicle, he said, was reported stolen from Richmond County. The men were still on the loose as of 3:15 p.m., and authorities continue to search in the vicinity of the bank and the vehicle.

Capt. Elwell said authorities believe these men also were involved more than a month ago in a robbery of the Beech Island Credit Union and possibly the Manis Mart convenience store.
