Lawton_Lawton Police continue to search for two suspects involved in Wednesday's robbery of the Lee Boulevard IBC Bank. The problem is, they say they can't get an accurate description of the robbers.
Just after 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, the two men, dressed in hoodies, walked in to the IBC Bank in the 1400 Block of West Lee Blvd. At least one of the suspects was armed. They got their cash and took off on foot.
After the robbery, the bank closed for the rest of the business day. There has been some concern since the two have not been caught, but Lawton Police say there's no need for alarm. At least three elementary schools went on a heightened security status, and at least three daycares in the area kept their children indoors on Wednesday.
Pamela Burk is the owner of one of the daycare facilities, and she says she's thankful she wasn't looking after any youngsters that day. "I would have kept them inside," she said. Her daycare is right in the path of where the two suspects fled on foot, just west of the bank. While the suspects are still on the lam, Burk says she will continue to take precautions.
Police say one of the suspects was armed with a gun, threatened the bank teller, and went behind the counter himself to get the cash. Authorities are reviewing the surveillance tape to get an accurate description of the robbers. Lawton detectives say some leads have come in, but so far they haven't led them to the culprits.
