SLIDESHOW: The Area's Most Wanted

This week the FBI needs help finding two brothers and a sister who robbed a Georgia bank with an AK-47.

On August 2, 2011 at approximately 12:24 p.m., the Valdosta Police Department along with the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office and the Remerton Police Department, responded to an armed robbery at Certus Bank, 460 Norman Drive.

Officers arrived on scene and were advised that three individuals, dressed in black with masks, entered the bank through the front entrance. The suspects are believed to be 2 white males and 1 white female. As the robbers entered the bank, shots were fired towards the ceiling and everyone in the bank was instructed to get down.

At least two of the robbers brandished weapons, one described as being an AK-47 type assault rifle and the other appearing to be a machine pistol, while other robber obtained an undisclosed amount of money.  All three robbers then departed the bank and were observed departing in an older model white, 4 door sedan.
