ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio (WTRF)- Two male suspects were arrested after a bank was robbed in Belmont County around 1 p.m. Monday.
Officials say Premier Bank in St. Clairsville in Plaza West was robbed with no injuries. Only two employees were at the bank at the time.
After the suspects left the bank, they lead police on a pursuit that ended in Guernsey County, where they were arrested after they crashed their vehicle.
St. Clairsville Police Chief Matt Arbenz says these things do happen, but it’s not that common around there.
“It’s unfortunate. We don’t like to see it. It doesn’t happen often. These guys, I can say, are not from this area. So, unfortunately, they thought this would be a good spot to hit, but thankfully, it will be the last spot they hit.”Chief Matt Arbenz, St. Clairsville Police Department
Both suspects were taken to the Guernsey County Jail.
The names of the suspects and how much was robbed from the bank have not been released at this time.
The FBI and local law enforcement are currently investigating this case.
