MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

The Mobile Police Department is looking for two gunman after a bank robbery at the Servis 1st Bank located on Old Shell Road.

According to MPD, they are looking for two black male suspects who are armed with handguns.

Surveillance video inside and outside the bank shows the bold heist. It happened in the middle of the day at a busy shopping center near Spring Hill.

Two Mobile bank tellers ready to help their customers, quickly realized the guys were there for a big withdrawal. Cameras caught the bank robbery, which started with one of the suspects calmly walking in just before 2:00 p.m. He distracts the teller until his partner gets there and sits down. The other teller chats with a customer, not knowing a man with a gun is waiting. 

The robbers stay under the radar until the customer leaves, and approach the tellers. The duo then pulled out their guns at the same time at the counter. One woman jumps back, and the other teller looks, until she notices, she too, has a gun pointed at her. She puts her hands up, and rushes to get the cash. 

Once they have it, the bandits make a break for it, first hiding their guns, before making a smooth getaway passed another customer walking in. They were seen walking in the opposite direction of Old Shell Road.

One suspect is about 5-foot-7 and has a slim build. He was seen wearing a black ball cap with white writing on it, a white t-shirt, black gym pants with a white stripe, white socks and "his pawpaws house slippers."

The second suspect is about 5-foot-11 and was wearing a red ball cap, white under shirt with a black shirt on top, black sunglasses, worn-out jeans and tennis shoes.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the suspects is urged to call MPD at 251-208-7000 or 251-208-7211.

A cash reward is available for their capture.
