During business hours on 227/15 this bank was brazenly robbed by three armed masked males who shouted "This is a stick-up".  to the employees and customers.  Two of the males went behind the counter and cleaned out the cash drawers and became  very agitated when the safe could not be opened.  They were followed down Todd Road by a witness who got the tag number, but they got away from him.  The cash in the bag had a tracking device attached which let police follow them.  No word as to an arrest.
