Two people pulled off a noon time robbery at the Liberty office of Liberty State Bank Thursday taking an undisclosed amount of cash and making their getaway, possibly in a white colored car.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says the robbers, a male and a female, entered the bank around 12:45 p.m.

Pictures from the bank's surveillance cameras reveal that the female was wearing brown coveralls and a paintball mask that covered her head. The male was wearing blue coveralls and a blue hoodie. He was also wearing a dark colored back pack with an orange colored letter \"T\" on it.

Sheriff Ray says the female first passed a note to a bank teller demanding money, but apparently got no satisfaction so she went to another bank employee and handed her the note.

The male then went behind the counter and helped himself to an undisclosed amount of cash.

The two then left the bank and are believed to have driven away in a white colored car.

Sheriff Ray says neither of the bank robbers produced a weapon during the hold up and none of the bank employees were injured.

After the robbery, one of the clerks called 911 and reported the hold-up and a BOLO was dispatched locally and to surrounding counties for authorities to be on the lookout for the suspects and the white car in which they may have been traveling.

The case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department.
