Omaha police rushed to a Bank of the West branch at 96th and L Street around 9:30 after getting a robbery call. Sergeant Steve Fornoff says it was a frightening ordeal for those inside.
Sergeant Fornoff says, “Both males were wearing dark clothing and masks, armed with guns. They came in and took over the bank and attempted to get into the vault. At which time we had some people in the drive-thru who noticed what was going on and called 911.”
Sergeant Fornoff says that frightened the two men who fled the bank empty handed. Both got into a white and silver Ford F-150 pickup and fled the scene.
That vehicle was located abandoned a short distance away and is currently being processed. Police believe that pickup was a stolen vehicle. The search for the two suspects continues. No one was injured.
