Regions Bank
620 Veterans Memorial Dr.
Kosciusko 2-22-2006

FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel McMullen says, "We have a pretty good idea they're all part of this robbery ring so were looking for that type of info that would help us understand where they may be where they went and so forth."

Both men are black males and could still live in the Jackson area.

The banks who were victims are also offering an additional $25,000.00 reward for an arrest in this case.

Anyone with information asked to call FBI at 601-948-5000.
