    Sept. 12: Another Bixby Knolls Bank Robbed, First Bank & Trust, Atlantic b/w Bixby & Roosevelt Rds.

    (Sept. 13, 2002) -- There's been another bank robbery in Bixby Knolls.

    And it was another brazen midday crime with the robbers striking shortly before 2 p.m. on Thursday Sept. 12.

    This time, the victimized business was the First Bank & Trust at 3850 Atlantic Ave. between Bixby and Roosevelt Rds. in the 8th Council district.

    LBPD spokeswoman Nancy Pratt told two men entered the business with three employees and a customer present.

    The employees and the customer suddenly found themselves at the dangerous end of a gun wielded by one of the bank robbers.

    The robbers demanded money. They made off with an unspecified amount. They were last seen headed north on Atlantic Ave.
