The circumstances of the robbery and the general descriptions of the robbers are similar to those from a Jan. 18 robbery of the same bank, the FBI reported.

Pat Piper, executive vice president of consumer banking for BOK Financial, issued this statement:

“We train diligently for these situations, but nothing prepares us for the stark images released today. We are very protective of our employees, and with them, the safety of our clients is the number one priority every hour of every day.

“In response to today's events, full-time security now safeguards this location. We are increasing our significant investment in surveillance equipment to both deter future crimes, and ensure law enforcement has every possible image before and after a criminal enters our premises.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI at 290-7770. Callers can remain anonymous.

The Oklahoma Banker's Association offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and/or conviction of anyone who robs a member bank. has disabled the comments for this article.
