    Bank Robbed by Armed Robbers Twice in Three Months

    Went to make a deposit for the church today only to find out that our bank had just been robbed, AGAIN. It was robbed in June by a guy who got away on a bicycle.
    Today the guy got away on foot.

    Chase Bank Robbed Again

    For the second time in a little more than three months, Chase National Bank on Clark Road has been a victim of an armed robbery.
    According to the scanner, the crime occurred about 10:55 a.m. today. Police are looking for a white male in his 50s with white and graying hair. He came in with a cane, wearing plaid pajama-style pants and a light brimmed hat.

    The subject was last seen possibly heading northbound on Clark on foot. He also was armed with a gun, however, police are unsure what kind of gun was used. Police also received a report of a white SUV traveling northbound on Clark Road at the same of the crime. Police says witnesses say the driver was driving recklessly enough that he almost caused an accident.

    It's unknown if that vehicle is connected to the crime, but Police Chief Chris Buzzard told a Post reporter that law enforcement officials would like to speak to that driver. Police have located a similar vehicle at Fastrip, but it wasn't the same one that was seen driving erratically in the area around the same time as the crime.

    The bank had been robbed on June 29 by the "Fedora Bandit." Police say they will be conducting an investigation for at least another hour inside the bank while FBI is en route to the scene. It's unclear at this time how long Chase Bank will be closed.

    I'm wondering how lame the local PD feels right now.

    The next robber will probably be using a walker or mobility scooter.

    He simply had "white" hair and was carrying a cane. Apparently, his foot speed was seriously faster than "white hair + cane" would imply. A ruse, perhaps? Or, gutter-poor security? A little of both, like as not.

    This branch has no security. It is poorly laid out too--there are main doors on the east and west side of the building.

    In addition, if they have a policy of not hitting the alarm until the perp has left the building, it would enhance escape chances.

    White & Graying hair. Pajama style pants, a cane. This must have been a sight. Chase obviously doesn't have their act together. I believe I'd be changing where I bank. "Police also received a report of a white SUV travelling northbound on clark road at the same of the crime" First, I think they left "time" out of that sentence. Secondly, I would bet that there were more vehicles than that headed northbound on clark at that time.

    Nice reporting!

    This robbery sounds familiar. Probably a neighborhood "hood" doing this.

    We had a bank in our town that was robbed three times by the same guy. He actually lived just around the corner from it so his get away was really quick each time.

    The police only got to catch him after his wife suspected he was involved and called to turn him in. They found his disguise in the home after getting a search warrant and looking the place over. He tried "hiding" in the bedroom and refused to come out until they were going to let the Police Dog loose and get all German Shepherd on him. He has since been convicted and is spending time in jail.

    Hopefully they can catch this bandito.
