The police report shows two men wearing masks and holding semi-automatic guns rushed in to TD Bank on Saturday. Once the men got inside they made the tellers open the vault and took around $14,000. After that they made the tellers give up their car keys and used one of the cars as a getaway vehicle.

It surprised many of the frequent customers. Billy Dishman said the TD bank near University and St. Augustine is where he used to do his banking, however going there now makes him feel uncomfortable.

"I don't know what it is about this bank. I don't know if it's a bad omen or something but if you look back on their records this bank does get robbed a lot," Dishman said.


The report also shows the stolen money had a GPS tracker in it that pinged a little over a mile from the bank before it stopped working. The car they stole was also tracked by GPS and found in front of a home two minutes from the bank.

Although there were no customers inside during the time of the robbery some customers said  this is why they worry about banking there.

"This is not the western days you know you can't even go in a bank without your picture being taken."

There was another robbery at a different TD bank in August that was very similar, two men came in wearing masks demanding money and got away with an employee's car. Right now we're asking JSO if they think the two robberies are related.
