Live Oak — Two fast food employees were robbed Saturday night while making a night deposit at a local bank, according to the Live Oak Police Department.

According to a LOPD report, on Saturday at approximately 1:30 a.m., officers of the Live Oak PD were dispatched to the First Federal Savings Bank, North Ohio Ave., Live Oak, in reference to a delayed robbery.

Upon arrival, officers made contact with two male victims who said they worked for a local fast food restaurant and were at the bank making a nightly deposit. As one of the men approached the night deposit box, two unidentified black males stepped out from behind the shrubbery and displayed a firearm. The men demanded  the money bag from the victim, and he complied. Once the men had the bag, they fled from the area on foot southbound towards Hamilton Avenue.

Suwannee and Hamilton Correctional K9’s were called to the scene, but lost the track a short distance away.

Detectives are currently seeking information in this case.

Anyone with information about any crime is asked to contact LOPD Detective Justin Bates at (386) 362-7463 ext. 232, or Crime Stoppers at 208-TIPS (8477). Individuals who offer tips can remain anonymous.
