More Oklahoma banks are being held up this year. And law enforcement authorities expect the increase in robberies to continue.

The FBI says 70 banks have been robbed in the state so far this year. Only 41 had been robbed at the same time last year. Authorities expect the number of bank robberies to double before the end of the year.

In the Tulsa area, 14 banks have been robbed.
