SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

Summerville police say the man wanted for a bank robbery Tuesday afternoon on North Main Street hit another bank in South Carolina earlier this month.

According to Summerville Police Department Captain Jon Rogers, the suspect held up a BB&T branch on Sunset Boulevard in West Columbia on Jan. 15.

The suspect has still not been identified.

Rogers said the Summerville hold-up happened at a First Citizens Bank branch near Walmart at 1319 North Main Street around 2:50 p.m.

Rogers said a man entered the bank and demanded money with no weapons being displayed.

The suspect left with an undetermined amount of cash.

The suspect is described as a white male aged between 30 and 40 years old, weighing approximately 250 pounds, and standing approximately 6'.

Surveillance photos show the suspect wearing a yellow-hued shirt with a green or brown hat and blue pants.  Surveillance from the West Columbia robbery shows him wearing the exact same thing.

One customer was inside the bank at the time of the robbery and no injuries were reported, Rogers said.
