Upon arrival, deputies found a male sitting in a car parked in front of the bank. As deputies approached they could hear what sounded like a saw coming from inside the bank. The male in the car started honking the horn when he saw Deputies approaching. Deputies could see that someone had forced entry into the bank, a glass door was broken.
While detaining the male who was in the car another male ran out of the broken door of the bank. He was wearing a mask covering his face. As he fled Deputies ordered him to stop and he complied. Both males were taken into custody without incident.
Not knowing if there were other suspects in the building Deputies used a robot to search the building. After finding no one else inside they investigated the scene.
