Police in Clayton are searching for two bank robbers after they were called to investigate an armed robbery at First Citizens Bank Wednesday morning.

They say two armed men wearing dark colored ski masks entered the bank on 10702 US Hwy 70W Business just after 9:30 a.m.

No one was hurt, but the suspects got away.

The men were last seen running toward a wooded area on the east side of the bank.

Police said it's likely the robbers escaped in a vehicle parked or waiting nearby. They're looking for a burgundy 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora seen leaving the area of the bank and would like to question the driver/occupants of the vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Clayton Police Department at (919) 553-4611. They can also call the Clayton Crime Stoppers tip line at (919) 359-TIPZ (8479).

All information obtained from the tip-line will remain confidential and callers will not be identified. A Crime Stoppers cash reward of up to $2,500 is available if information is provided that leads to arrest(s).
