Columbia police are investigating a bank robbery that occurred around 10 a.m. Wednesday at a Farrow Road bank - and a possible link to another bank robbery earlier this spring.
Employees at S.C. State Credit Union told police a man in a blue work jumpsuit, dark gloves, a ball cap and something covering his face approached a teller Wednesday demanding money. He implied he had a weapon, though no one saw it, according to reports.
The suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money and got into a white or light cream-colored, newer model Ford Explorer with a second suspect, police said.
While fleeing, they drove into a ditch in front of the bank but were able to back out, then were last seen driving south on Farrow Road.
Police say the same suspects may be involved in the May 27 robbery at a S.C. State Credit Union on Colonial Drive. The suspects - both dressed in navy blue work jumpsuits, green wool gloves and knit ski caps with holes cut out to see - approached a teller and demanded money before fleeing the bank with an undisclosed amount.
