A bank in Kissimmee was robbed by two suspects on Monday afternoon. Kissimmee
police detectives report the First Southern Bank at 910 West Vine Street
was robbed when two men entered the bank, with one man handing a teller
a note demanding money while the other man held the security doors of
the bank open.
After the teller gave the suspects money, the two fled with the loot until
a dye pack exploded and they then dropped the money. Fortunately, no one
was injured during the robbery.
According to investigators, the robbers hid for awhile, and then one of
the suspects decided to rob another bank. During the robbery, the suspect
once again passed a teller a note demanding money, however this time he
