Council Bluffs Police are looking for two suspects who robbed Frontier Bank on Valley View Drive on Thursday morning.

At 8:47 a.m. Thursday, officers responded to a report of an armed robbery at 940 Valley View Drive, according to a press release from Council Bluffs Police Department. Police said bank employees reported that two men came into the bank wearing masks — one of them armed with a handgun — and demanded money.

An undetermined amount of cash was taken, police said, and the suspects fled the scene in a white Pontiac Grand Am, recently reported stolen in Omaha, which officers found abandoned in the parking lot of a nearby apartment complex.

The robbery is currently under investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call CBPD at 712-328-4728 or CrimeStoppers at 712-328-7867.
