Area authorities are on the lookout for three heavily armed black males who allegedly robbed the BankPlus branch in Stonewall Friday afternoon.
According to witnesses, the suspects carried shotguns and handguns and fled in a red Ford sports-tract SUV.
"We have an attempted bank robbery," said Clarke County Sheriff Todd Kemp. "One of the clerks was held at gunpoint and one employee was robbed. The robbers were unsuccessful."
No one was hurt in the robbery. It's the second bank robbery in east Mississippi this week.
