NEWPORT-Law enforcement officials are still searching for two unidentified robbers who held up Tennessee State Bank in Newport, on Wednesday, Dec. 6, according to Newport Police Department Chief Maurice Shults.

"There's nothing new" to report about the robbers, including one that brandished an assault rifle, Chief Shults said Friday afternoon, Dec. 28.

After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money from the tellers, the two men are believed to have fled in a silver SUV, headed east on Interstate 40.

Bank surveillance cameras captured very clear video of the two men.
