FBI: Serial Robber Hits Third Bank in Washington Court House

Post by KnightOfTheOldeCode » Mon Dec 08, 2008 6:15 pm

WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE, Ohio — A man who robbed a U.S. Bank on Friday afternoon is believed to be the same man who held up two Columbus banks earlier this week, according to a news release issued by the FBI.

The latest robbery occurred at about 2:30 p.m. at the U.S. Bank located at 1240 Columbus Avenue in Washington Court House.

The FBI said a man entered the bank and went into an employee's office to talk about opening an account. While in the office he slid a note to the employee that demanded money and threatened to shoot her if she did not comply.

The employee told authorities that she observed a handgun tucked in the waist of his pants.

The employee retrieved money for the robber and he fled the bank to a nearby Laundromat, where investigators said he discarded some of his clothes.

The man fled before police arrived.

The robber was described as a light-skinned black or biracial man in his 30s or 40s. He was about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build, and wore a dark baseball cap and a light blue-colored hooded sweatshirt.

According to the FBI, investigators believe the robber is the same man who held up two Columbus-area banks on Monday.

Police said the man attempted to rob a Chase Bank on North High Street but left without taking any cash. About 20 minutes later, police believe he successfully robbed a National City Bank on East Town Street.

Anyone with information about these robberies was asked to contact the FBI at 614-744-2168 .
