Tulsa police are on the lookout for two men who walked into a Sand Springs bank Thursday morning carrying guns and demanding cash.

The men jumped out of the bushes and approached an employee as she was entering the local Oklahoma bank just after 7:30. They forced her inside the front doors and robbed the bank.

The F-B-I and Sand Springs police canvassed the area. There is no word yet on how much money was taken. "There were three cash boxes taken from the safe,” said Carl Wortham, Sand Springs assistant police chief. “We recovered one box and we’re in the process of processing the scene and gathering evidence."

A pistol reportedly dropped by one of the robbers was discovered near the bank. Authorities are still searching for the suspects.
