Police bring in chopper, dogs to hunt for armed bank robbers

Posted: Updated:

The FBI and Toledo Police are searching for suspects from a Saturday morning Charter One Bank robbery in Toledo.

Around 9 a.m., they say two suspects entered the Charter One Bank at 5911 Lewis Avenue. They were armed with at least one handgun.

One suspect jumped the counter and took cash from the teller's drawer while the second suspect stood by in the lobby.

They fled in a stolen car. That vehicle was recovered several blocks away from the bank just a few minutes after the robbery.

Multiple law enforcement agencies conducted an extensive search of the area. The Monroe County Sheriff's department dispatched both their Helicopter and K-9 units to assist. The suspects were not located.

Police did not issue much of a description beyond saying they were seeking two black, male suspects and releasing surveillance pictures from the robbery that show a masked suspect.
