Police try to determine if robberies are linked


The most recent robbery happened Saturday afternoon at the bank inside the Walmart on New Bern Ave.

And although that robbery matched the motive of the previous robberies, the physical description of Saturday's robbery is different from that of the 'Repeat Robber.'

Despite the physical differences, police say they still need help catching Saturday's suspects.

The suspect wore a baseball cap and slipped a teller a note before escaping with an undisclosed amount of cash.

He is described as a male with a light complexion, who was wearing a yellow jacket and eyeglasses.

Police say they may release surveillance pictures from the crime, which could help them get some leads.

The man who police call the 'Repeat Robber' is linked to a dozen holdups similar to the one that happened Saturday.

The 'Repeat Robber' is described as a heavy set man between 35 and 50 years old. He is between 5'6" and 5'9" tall.

The North Carolina Bankers Association is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest.
