SAVANNAH,GA ( May 8, 2012)  A search is undergoing for two gunmen who robbed a bank but dropped at least some of the money taken after dye packs exploded this morning.

 FBI agents have taken control of the investigation, aided by Central Precinct officers, K-9 units, a police helicopter and various Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department detective and  Forensics units.

 The men walked into the Savannah Bank branch in Medical Arts Shopping Center on Waters Avenue about 11:15 a.m., ordered occupants of the bank to the floor, and took an undisclosed amount of money.

Police tracked the men across seveal blocks toward Derrenne Avenue, locking down a path several blocks wide between 63rd Street and Derrenne. They discovered a mask and glove and later an amount of money, all with indications that a dye pack had detonated.

 Police searched several businesses and buildings in the area for the two black males, each slender and about 6 feet tall. One was wearing a green hoodie and the other black pants.

 Anyone with information on the robery, the gunmen or anyone with red dye on them is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274627). Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
