Bank Robbery on Delaware Ave

The Enterprise-Journal is reporting that the Southwest Mall branch of First Bank was robbed today by three armed men.

Three men brandishing guns entered First Bank at 1490 Delaware Ave. in McComb at 12:15 p.m. today, robbing the bank of an undetermined amount of cash, police said.

There is no description at this time of the men, who fled west on Delaware Avenue, where a Southwest Mississippi Narcotics Enforcement Unit agent saw their car and gave chase, according to McComb Assistant Police Chief Greg Martin.

Details are sketchy in this developing story. As of 1:00 P.M. the robbers were said to be on foot in the woods off Hwy 24. McComb PD, Pike Co. Sheriff, MHP, and Dept of Wildlife officials are all reported to be involved in the search.
