Two men robbed a Hephzibah bank Monday afternoon, dropping money as they made their getaway.

About 3 p.m., Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Southern Bank at 2455 Georgia Highway 88, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.

They were told that two black men wearing masks had entered the bank and demanded cash.

They were last seen leaving the bank on foot, the statement said.

More deputies were called to the scene after someone noticed people picking up money the bandits had dropped along the road near the bank.

Charges

When they find the punks and arrest them for bank robbery, the deputies need to also add a littering charge on top of bank robbery.

Well know, dropping a few

Well know, dropping a few along the way could mix up the trail just a hair.

Perhaps the accused are a little "more" than our usual posters give them credit for.

Then again, maybe not.

Maybe

The Robbers knew to toss the packets of money, with the GPS tracking device in them?

Southern Bank

The city of Hephzibah held a festival there Saturday, could those two have been there and thought that this Bank could be easy to rob.
