The FBI is searching for two armed robbers who threatened lives at a Vectra Bank in Westminster Thursday morning.

"The gunmen were violent and threatened the lives of the tellers during the robbery," the FBI stated.

The FBI described the first suspect as being 5-feet-7-inches to 5-feet-8-inches tall. He was wearing a dark jacket, a gray sweatshirt, gloves, athletic shoes with red details and a red bandana covering his face. He was carrying a multi-colored Adidas courier bag.
