The FBI is searching for a pair of gun-wielding bank robbers who struck two bank branches – one in Pennsylvania, the other in New Jersey- in the course of a month.

Most recently, the duo held up the Wells Fargo Bank on the 2300 block of East Lincoln Highway in Langhorne. The two masked men entered the branch shortly before 10 a.m. One brandished a silver semi-automatic handgun and carried a red plastic five-gallon gas container, the FBI said. As the gunman remained in the bank’s public area, the other man vaulted the counter,  grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash and stuffed it into a red bag with black drawstrings. Investigators don’t know why the gunman carried the gas container with him.

The same masked pair is believed to be responsible for the similar armed robbery of the Wells Fargo branch on Washington Crossing-Pennington Road in Pennington, N.J. Both are considered armed and dangerous.

They are described as black males in their mid-20s to mid-30s, approximately 5-foot-10 to 6-foot-1.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 215-641-8910. Wells Fargo is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to their arrests.
