Officials confirmed to WNWO that a pair of bank robberies in Southeast Michigan were carried out by the same man on Monday.
Dundee Police Chief David Uhl said the first robbery happened just before 1 p.m. at the Old National Bank, at 1380 S. Main St., in Adrian.
During that robbery, the white male suspect was wearing a tan baseball hat and sunglasses.
Police said that man, believed to be around 30 to 40-years-old around 6 feet tall, showed a teller a gun in his waistband before demanding money.
Around 25 miles away, a man with the same physical characteristics robbed the Bank of America on Tecumseh Street just after 2 p.m.
The suspect, in that case, was wearing different clothes and donned a Santa hat as well as a different pair of sunglasses.
At the second robbery, however, the suspect also displayed a handgun in his waistband before demanding money.
According to press releases on both incidents, the suspect had light facial hair during the first robbery and during the second had 'sparse facial hair'.
Investigators believe this may have been done intentionally, by the bank robber, to disguise his appearance and possibly keep the cases from being connected.
Anyone with information about this case can contact Detective Greg Lanford of Adrian Police Department at 517-264-4851 or Dundee Police at 734-529-3430.
