PHOENIX -- Police are searching for three men who robbed a Valley bank earlier this week.

Authorities said the suspects took an undisclosed amount of cash from the Arizona State Credit Union at 6501 E. Greenway Parkway on Tuesday.

One of the suspects entered the building by himself and approached the counter. A few minutes later, a second suspect wearing a disguise walked in and pointed two guns at employees and a customer.

The first suspect pulled out a bag and began opening the teller drawers, while the second suspect ordered all the employees out of their offices.

The men were not able to take a lot of money because the employees were not able to access their computers to dispense any cash.

The suspects fled the scene in a newer white Nissan Altima or Maxima with California plates that was being driven by a third suspect.

The first suspect to enter the bank is described as a black male between the ages of 20 and 25. He’s approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a thin build and possible facial hair.

The second suspect who was carrying the guns is also a black male between 20 and 25 years old. He’s said to be between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall, and has a thin build.

The driver of the getaway vehicle is also a black male, but authorities have no further description of the suspect.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the FBI at 623-466-1999.
