BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Biloxi Police have released two surveillance photos showing the men they say robbed The First Bank on the corner of Pass and Big Lake roads.

It happened Thursday afternoon around 12:30pm. As you can see in the pictures, one of the robbers was armed with a shotgun; Witnesses said the other had a knife.

The man with the knife was described as wearing a tan colored, long sleeve military style shirt, jeans, and gloves with a sheer mask over his head. That robber went to the teller and took an undisclosed amount of money.

The second robber was armed with a wooden gripped sawed off shotgun and wearing a white button down Oxford-style shirt, black slacks, gloves, black and white shoes, and a baseball style cap with a sticker or emblem on the top of the visor. That man also wore a sheer mask over his head.

Witnesses said the men were only in the bank for a short time before escaping out the bank's east door. No one inside the bank was injured during the robbery.
