St. Bernard police searching for armed bank robbery suspects

ST. BERNARD, OH (FOX19) - Police in St. Bernard are searching for armed bank robbery suspects.

According to police, two men and a woman went into the bank, one of them claiming to have a gun, and demanded money from two tellers at the Wesbanco Bank on Vine Street around 1 p.m.

Police said the female suspect went into the bank inquiring about opening up an account, and the two men committed the crime.

"The first one produced a silver hand gun to the teller demanded money, and it was given," Lt. Bill Ungruhe said. "They then went to a second teller and gave them a bag and filled that with additional money."

The suspects fled on foot southbound on Vine Street to a silver car. Police said it appears to be a 2007-2009 Lexus and/or Nissan Maxima with no front plate and dark tinted windows.

The pictures of the two male suspects are grainy, but police are hoping someone knows who they are.

"Both of the men were wearing a mask. We are happy that no one was hurt. Just money was taken, and obviously the employees were scared," Ungruhe said.

The suspects got away with an undetermined amount of cash.

Anyone who has any information is asked to contact Lt. Mike Simos or PO Keith Ingram at 513-242-2727.
