ST. JOSEPH — St. Joseph police think that one man could be responsible for five bank robberies in the city since late May.
The perpetrator robbed the Postal and Community Credit Union on Tuesday and escaped with money after displaying a gun.
St. Joseph Police Capt. Kevin Castle said it was the first time the perpetrator had used a gun in a robbery.
Police and the FBI think it's likely that the same man robbed the same institution on June 29 after displaying a note demanding money.
The man is also a suspect in robberies May 27 at a Nodaway Valley Bank, June 2 at the Goetz Credit Union and July 9 at Midwest Federal.
The suspect is described as white, in his 30s or 40s, with some facial hair, with medium build and height.
