Authorities were on the hunt Thursday night for two men they say robbed the UVa Community Credit Union in Fluvanna County.
The robbery happened around 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon.
Police say that's when two men walked into the bank along Route 53, near the Jefferson Plaza. One displayed a gun and demanded cash.
According to police no customers were in the bank at the time of the robbery, though several employees were inside. No one was hurt.
Authorities said they were reviewing surveillance video from businesses surrounding the credit union.
They believe the men may have fled on foot to a nearby car.
The pair got away with a "large" amount of cash.
The Fluvanna Sheriff's Office said they would be working with both the State Police and the FBI on the investigation.
Police described the two suspects as black males, one 6'2" and the other 5'8". One was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. The other was wearing a maroon hooded sweatshirt.
Police are asking anyone with information to call the Fluvanna County Sheriff's Office at 434-589-8211.
Fluvanna authorities say this is the first robbery like this in that county in 20 years.
