Masked, armed suspects rob Forestdale BB&T


FORESTDALE, Ala. (WIAT) — Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department says that two armed, masked men robbed the BB&T located at 1600 block of Forestdale Boulevard.

Randy Christian with the Sheriff’s Office said that deputies arrived on the scene around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday afternoon to investigate reports of a robbery.
