Authorities are seeking three suspects in connection with a bank robbery Friday afternoon in Burlingame, police said.  Two men entered the US Bank at 1188 El Camino Real at about 11:50 a.m. Police said one of the suspects jumped over the teller counter, brandished a silver handgun and took an undisclosed amount of cash from two teller drawers.  It is unknown if the second suspect, who remained on the customer side of the counter, was armed, police said. No customers were in the bank during the robbery and none of the three employees was injured.  The suspects then left the bank and met a third person who drove them away in a red 1992 Chevy Suburban, police said. Officers recovered the vehicle, which had been reported stolen out of Pittsburg, in the 1000 block of Paloma Avenue. The suspects remain at large.  Police described the two suspects who went into the bank as black men in their 20s and 30s, both wearing jackets with hoods and blue jeans. No description of the third suspect was immediately available.
