TROUTMAN, N.C. -- Authorities are still looking to identify the suspects responsible for a bank robbery on May 20.

The Iredell County Sheriff's Office said the Bank Of America on North Main Street in Troutman was robbed by two men around 9:30 a.m.

The armed men fled with $5100 in cash in a gray Buick Century that was reported stolen in Charlotte earlier that day, police say.

Troutman Police say one of the suspects was armed with a silver or chrome revolver.

Authorities found the stolen Buick on the southbound ramp of I-77 at exit 49A. Police believe the two suspects either stole another car at that location, or had a second vehicle waiting for them.

The State Highway Patrol reported seeing a silver Honda Accord in that area earlier in the morning.

This robbery happened about 20 minutes after a Bank of America on Albemarle Road in Charlotte was robbed. There is no connection to the robberies, according to police.

There were no reported injuries during the robbery in Troutman.

Authorities are searching for the suspects. If you have any information that may assist law enforcement in this case, please call the Troutman Police Department at (704) 528-7610
