N. Charleston bank robber suspected in Summerville hold-up
NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Officials with the Summerville Police Department say a man who robbed a bank in North Charleston on Tuesday is believed to have robbed a bank last month in Summerville.
Capt. Jon Rogers says the man who robbed the Regions Bank on 2210 on Ashley Phosphate Road just after 2 p.m. on Tuesday may be the same person who robbed a Summerville bank in January.
On Jan. 29, a suspect held up the 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 same man is also suspected of robbing the BB&T branch on Sunset Boulevard in West Columbia on Jan. 15.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Regions Bank at 2210 Ashley Phosphate Road was robbed. A teller told police a male suspect entered the bank and presented a note demanding money.
Investigators say the suspect did not show a weapon during the robbery. After receiving an undetermined amount of money, the suspect fled the bank on foot.
Police say the suspect is a white male around 6'0" and 200 pounds. He has hazel eyes, a goatee, and was wearing a baseball cap, gray long sleeve shirt and blue jeans.
