PAOLI, Pa. (CBS) — The FBI says a suburban serial bandit who they believe is responsible for eight robberies in Bucks and Montgomery counties has now struck in Chester County.
The latest robbery came Thursday at a Citizens Bank branch inside an Acme supermarket in Paoli, Tredyffrin Township.
Authorities believe this is the same person who robbed five banks and three retail establishments since October 21st (see previous story).
The FBI has released surveillance photos, hoping someone will recognize the suspect.
“The photos that have been put out through the press are very good photos, and there is a high likelihood that if somebody recognizes these photos they’ll be able to make a positive identification,” says Joe Bushner, supervisor at the Fort Washington office of the FBI.
Police believe the man is armed, although the robberies have so far not been violent.
The robber is described as a white male in his thirties, 5’10” to 6’0″ tall, with a medium build and brown hair. He’s been observed in a silver sedan at multiple robbery scenes.
