JEFFERSON COUNTY BANK ROBBERY: 

Jefferson County detectives need your help catching those responsible for a June 7th bank robbery at the BB&T branch on Chalkville Mountain Road. 

Two armed men, whose pictures are posted to the right of this story, walked into the bank shortly after 3 pm. They jumped over the counter, held employees at gunpoint, and left with a large amount of cash in a black SUV.

"Chances are for somebody to be this brazen and hit a bank in the middle of the afternoon, this is not going to be their first robbery," said Sgt. Brian Allison.

If you have heard or seen anything that could help in this case, call Crime Stoppers at the contact information listed below.  Remember, all calls are anonymous.  And if your tip leads to an arrest, detectives will give you a cash reward.

In addition to the Crime Stoppers reward, Wells Fargo is offering a $5,000 reward.
