MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) — The Regions Bank on Madison Boulevard was robbed on Wednesday, according to authorities.
Captain Lamar Anderson with the Madison Police Department confirmed with News 19 the bank was robbed by two men wearing masks.
Anderson said they were armed with handguns and fled from the scene.
This is the same bank that was robbed on December 13 after authorities said a man walked in wearing a wig and a face covering, saying he then placed a small box on the counter and demanded money.
Anderson said bank employees gave police the impression there was a bomb in the box.
The box was later determined to be “non-lethal.” Police are still looking for that suspect but did say it was difficult to identify them due to the mask.
