THOMASVILLE, N.C. — Police are searching for two suspects after a credit union was robbed Wednesday afternoon in Thomasville. 

Police said a man armed with a handgun entered the Members Credit Union at 100 Lines St. and demanded money shortly after 1:15 p.m. Wednesday. 

The suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of money in a vehicle that was waiting outside the credit union, police said. A second suspect was driving the vehicle, but police did not provide a description. 

Police said an off-duty Greensboro police officer who had just arrived at the bank was able to describe the vehicle and license tag number, but the description and tags were not released. 

Detectives found the vehicle abandoned a few blocks away from the credit union, police said.
