Would-be bank robbers thwarted by locked door

LAWTON, Okla._A special security measure prevented two would-be bank robbers from even making their way into the bank's lobby.

An employee at the Peoples State Bank on West Gore Boulevard told police two men wearing masks walked through the front door of the bank late Monday morning, but because the second door has a lock that must be opened with an electric remote control, the woman says she refused to unlock the second door. Her refusal to open the door prevented the robbers from getting inside.

She told police they tried to force the door open, but when they couldn't they left and sped off in a 1986 Chevrolet pickup.
