CRENSHAW COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - A second suspect, wanted in connection to an armed bank robbery in Crenshaw County, remains on the run.
According to Crenshaw County Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement officials had not taken the suspect into custody. The suspect, who has not been named, is accused of robbing a Dozier bank Wednesday afternoon.
Another suspect, Jamie Ryan, was taken into custody shortly after the robbery. During his arrest, Sheriff’s Deputy Greg Jackson says deputies found a weapon.
Deputies found the suspects’ car in downtown Brantley and ultimately forced it off the road just north of the city. Jackson says the suspects then ran from the car into the woods.
The suspects’ car tag is registered in Montgomery, but no other details about them were clear.
Search dogs with the Alabama Department of Corrections and an Alabama State Trooper helicopter are assisting in the search.
Jones said anyone in the Brantley area is asked to lock their doors and watch for anyone suspicious. Residents of Old Brantley Luverne Road, South Carter Road, and Brunson Chapel Road are asked to pay close attention to anyone coming out of the woods and report the information to 911 immediately.
