Henry County Police were trying to locate two men Friday in connection with the armed robbery of a Stockbridge bank.

According to authorities, the men dumped their getaway car after the heist, and were last seen in a red Dodge Charger.

The robbery took place at about 9 a.m., Friday, at the RBC Centura Bank located at 410 Country Club Drive.

Police said the two men were wearing masks when they entered the bank with handguns and demanded money from two tellers. Police said they left the bank in a green 1998 Ford Escort.

Henry County Police spokesman Capt. Jason Bolton said police later found the Escort behind a business on Eagle's Landing Parkway.

"A red dye pack exploded in the ... getaway car shortly after [the suspects left] the bank," Bolton said.

No injuries were reported during the bank robbery.

The suspects are described as black males in their early to mid-20s, each weighing 170 to 180 pounds with a medium build. One of the men was described as approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, and was seen wearing black clothing at the time of the robbery.

The other man, described as 5 feet 8 inches tall, was seen wearing a plaid hooded jacket.

Anyone with information on the case was asked to contact Henry Police Detective Wayne Bender at (770) 288-8253, or Crime Stoppers Atlanta at (404) 577-TIPS.
