NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Police are searching for two armed men who robbed an upstate New York bank just before it opened and reportedly made off with more than $200,000.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (https://bit.ly/1Kh49b4 ) the two masked men forced their way into Hudson Heritage Federal Credit Union’s city of Newburgh branch around 8 a.m. Monday as a single employee was preparing the bank for opening.

The thieves raided the bank’s vault after a second employee arrived and fled in a light-colored four-door sedan. No one was injured in the robbery.

Officials say this was the second robbery at the bank in less than nine months. An armed robber took more than $20,000 from the bank in December 2014.
