Armed robber hits banks in Plano, Richardson
The man displayed a small, black handgun and appeared to be talking on the phone during each robbery.
Plano police are asking for help identifying a man who they say is responsible for two bank robberies in the past week.
The man's most recent robbery occurred Thursday when he struck the Texans Credit Union in Plano, 101 West Spring Creek Parkway. On Monday, the same man is suspected of robbing the Chase Bank location at 720 West Renner Road in Richardson.
The suspect is described as a white male in his mid 20s to early 30s, standing between 6 feet and 6-foot-2 and weighing 165 to 180 pounds. The man is clean-shaven with no visible tattoos or scars. During both robberies he wore a baseball hat with the letter "A" on it.
Officer David Tilley of the Plano Police Department said the man displayed a small, black handgun and appeared to be talking on the phone during each robbery. He got away with an unknown amount of money during the Plano robbery, Tilley said.
Anyone with information on the robberies can reach the Plano Police Tip Line at 972-941-2148, the Richardson Police at 972-744-4801, or Crime Stoppers at 877-373-8477.
