KENNETH CITY, FL (WFLA) -

A pair of bank robbers donned their masks early on Halloween making off with an undisclosed amount of cash from a Kenneth City bank.

The incident occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. Thursday, several hours before trick or treaters hit the streets to collect goodies.

According to a Kenneth City Police Department report the suspects were wearing devil and ghost masks when they entered the First Bank location at 5825 54th Avenue North. One of the men – the one wearing the ghost mask – brandished a handgun as the pair demanded cash.

The suspects ran from the bank with two trays of money. They jumped into a red, full-sized Cadillac Escalade that was waiting for them outside.

Police say the suspects are black males, approximately 5’8’’ tall with thin builds. The one in the devil mask was wearing a white shirt and black shorts. The ghost mask suspect was wearing a black shirt and green pants.

Nobody was injured during the commission of the crime.

If you have any information about this incident, please contact Detective Tucker with the Kenneth City Police Department at 727-420-5278.
