Officials: Bank robbers escape with more than $200,000

Two armed men escaped with more than $200,000 after an early morning bank heist in the Hudson Valley today.



Police say the men forced their way into a Newburgh bank around 8 a.m. as one employee was preparing to open.



They say the thieves raided the bank's vault and then took off.



No one was injured in the incident.



It is the second time the bank has been hit in the last nine months. In December, an armed robber took more than $20,000.
