An increase in recent bank robberies has police in the Lowcountry searching for suspects.

Police are still searching for the suspects involved in three separate bank robberies across the Charleston area since May 10.

The latest robbery happened at the First Federal Bank located in the 7800 block of Rivers Avenue around 4 p.m. Wednesday.

North Charleston police say a man entered the bank and handed a note to a teller demanding money. The man then took the money and left the bank. The suspect is described as a white man in his early 40's, 5'8" with a thin build.

On Monday, a bank on Cumberland Street in downtown Charleston was robbed. In this case, witnesses told investigators that a black male entered the First Reliance Bank, between the corners of Church Street and State Street, armed with a handgun. The suspect is described as being 6'0" and in his 30's. The suspect left the scene on foot with an unspecified amount of money.

The third robbery still being investigated happened on Tuesday May 10 in Mt Pleasant. Police say a female suspect robbed the Palmetto Heritage Bank and Trust located at 3102 North Highway 17.  Witnesses say she entered the bank with a firearm and demanded money from the clerk.

After receiving an unspecified amount of money, the suspect then fled on foot. The suspect is described as a black female about 5'2" to 5'5" and is described as being heavyset.

Surveillance photos of two of the suspects have been released, and the suspects are still on the loose. If you have any information regarding any of these three bank robberies, contact police at 554-5700 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
