LAWRENCE, Ind. -- The reward for the arrest of two men accused of robbing a Lawrence bank is now up to $20,000. 

The robbery happened at the Huntington Bank on Pendleton Pike and Oak-Landon Road just after 9 a.m. on July 6. 

Lawrence police say two men walked into the bank and demanded money from the tellers. They left with an undisclosed amount of cash. 

The suspects are described as a 6-foot tall male with a thin-built and a 6 foot 2 inch tall male with a solid build. Both were completely covered in dark clothing.  

A dye pack was taken and deployed inside the getaway vehicle, which was a white Mercedes Benz that had been stolen during a carjacking earlier in the week before July 6th.  

The getaway vehicle was recovered in a nearby neighborhood. There is no secondary getaway vehicle information.

Huntington Bank is now offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the two men. 

Anyone with information about the robbery should contact the Lawrence Police Department or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
