Police are still on the hunt for the two suspects, who they believe have pulled off three bank robberies in the Atlanta metro area within the past few weeks.

According to the FBI, the two suspects entered the Wachovia branch Wednesday brandishing guns and donning disheveled black wigs before quickly leaving with an undisclosed amount of cash, reports the paper.

Prior to Wednesday's heist the pair reportedly entered a Wachovia branch Aug. 16 armed with handguns at approximately 10:30 a.m. in Norcross, Ga, north of Atlanta.

The first robbery suspect jumped over the teller counter while the second suspect stayed in the lobby area ordering other bank patrons to the floor at gunpoint, reported CBS affiliate WGCL.

The suspects then fled the scene in a silver Lexus with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The same pattern was displayed during a July 27 robbery that occurred at a Wachovia branch in Atlanta, where the men got away with an undisclosed amount of money from the teller stations, according to WGCL.

Authorities have described the first suspect as being an African American male between 20 and 30 years old, wearing a short black wig, glasses and t-shirt. The second suspect is an African American male between 20 and 25 years old. He was wearing a shoulder-length wig, work boots and has a stocky build.

Anyone with information regarding this matter should contact the Atlanta FBI office at 404-679-9000.
