Authorities have found the vehicle they believe was involved in an afternoon bank robbery in southeast Columbia Friday afternoon. Deputies are still looking for the two men involved in the heist.

Investigators say an armed man robbed the TD Bank at Garners Ferry Road and Greenlawn Drive around 1 p.m.

The vehicle deputies believe was used as a getaway car was recovered nearby. Inside was money that had been taken from the bank.

The vehicle was stolen during a carjacking earlier Friday morning, investigators said.

Witnesses said one of the men was African American, standing approximately 5'11" and wearing a long-sleeved shirt. Deputies believe he may have changed his clothes after the incident.

As a precaution, Meadowfield Elementary School was placed on lockdown for a short period of time. That lockdown has been lifted.

Nobody was injured.
