Three men rob Phoenixville bank
PHOENIXVILLE Three men armed with handguns robbed a Phoenixville bank Tuesday morning, police said.
The men, described as black males wearing black ski masks, entered the Wells Fargo at 200 Schuylkill Rd. at about 11 a.m. and ordered all of the customers to the ground, according to a news release. The men then jumped over the counter and ordered the tellers to remove money from their drawers, police said.
East Pikeland Township Police Chief James Franciscus said bank personnel were still conducting an audit to see how much money was taken. He said officials believe the men might have fled in a blue van, though their escape was not caught on camera.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the East Pikeland Township Police Department at 610-935-0606.
