PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) - A pair of bank robbery suspects make their first court appearance Thursday.

Twenty-year-old Jason Pulley and 34-year-old Antwan Thomas are behind bars accused of robbing the Bank of McKenney on Airport Street in Dinwiddie County around 9:30pm Wednesday morning.

The Sheriff's department says one of the men went into the bank, stole cash and hopped into a get-away car driven by the other suspect.

They didn't get far though -- deputies arrested them about three minutes later in Petersburg.
