Police say robbery suspects remain in SW Ohio bank



Published: Fri, April 27, 2012 @ 12:07 p.m.

SPRINGBORO, Ohio (AP) — Police say two suspected robbers have refused to leave a bank in southwest Ohio and a SWAT team is on the scene of the standoff.

The dispatcher says the armed suspects wearing masks entered the bank in Springboro shortly before it was scheduled to open around 9 a.m. today.

No injuries have been reported.

An FBI spokesman in Cincinnati says only one employee was believed to be in the bank at the time of the alleged robbery, and that employee got out safely.

FBI spokesman Michael Brooks says the FBI is working with local authorities in negotiations to attempt to get the suspects to surrender.

The Dayton Daily News reports that nearby businesses including a preschool are locked down.

Springboro is about 20 miles south of Dayton.
