KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Two suspects are on the run after reportedly stealing a pickup truck overnight and then robbing a north Knoxville bank around 9:30 a.m. Friday morning.
A KPD spokesperson said the two men stole a green Ford Ranger from an apartment on Pleasant Ridge Road shortly after midnight.
About nine hours later, they walked into the SunTrust Bank, 2075 N. Broadway, wearing brightly colored highway vests and robbed it. They ditched the truck immediately afterwards.
Now, police say they are searching for a white sedan, possibly a Nissan Sentra. Both men are believed to be armed.
