ROBBERY UPDATE: Reward offered in robbery case

By Staff
Those involved in recent bank robberies in Florala and Flomaton are now wanted by the FBI and a $5,000 reward is being offered for their capture and conviction, Florala Chief Sonny Bedsole said Wednesday.
Monday, a nearly identical heist was performed at Flomaton’s United Bank. After reviewing video surveillance of the robbery, a Florala teller said she believed it was the same couple.
However, there is one difference between the Florala robbery and the Flomaton robbery – an eyewitness was able to provide a description of the getaway vehicle.
Bedsole said an agent with the Mobile field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted his department Tuesday, stating they would adopt the case.
Wachovia Bank officials are offering the reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Florala’s robbery.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Florala Police Department at 334-858-3244.
