At approximately 12:55p.m., the couple entered the Kroger and proceeded to the bank located inside. Both approached the teller, but it was the woman who handed the teller a threatening note which demanded money. The teller turned over some cash. The robbers fled the area and were last seen running across the Kroger parking lot and across Wirt Road. No one was physically hurt during the robbery.
Why they didn't stay to stock up on Stove Top stuffing and canned cranberry sauce, we'll never know.
Call Crime Stoppers if you recognize them -- you'll get some cash for the holiday shopping season.
