Armed men rob ''no-guns'' Fifth Third bank

The Dayton Daily News is reporting that two men entered Fifth Third Bank at 6301 Wilmington Pike about 3 p.m. and took an undetermined amount of cash at gunpoint, Centerville police Lt. Bruce Robertson said.

The first suspect, who brandished a silver semiautomatic handgun, wore a hooded gray sweatshirt with the logo "Old Navy" in black letters across the front, blue jeans and black boots, Robertson said.

The second suspect, who wore a hooded black sweatshirt and blue jeans, displayed a revolver. Both wore black ski masks.

Robertson said the suspects ran north from the bank and entered an older model black or dark-colored medium-sized SUV, which was last seen speeding north on Interstate 675.

Apparently these gentlemen didn't see the "no-guns" signs which are prominently displayed at Fifth Third banks throughout the state. As we have tried to tell them for months, the bank's signs, posted in the name of safety, have been proven once again only to keep out law-abiding citizens who have undergone extensive background checks, received firearms training, etc.
