FBI officials in St. Louis suspect that a man who robbed a Regions Bank branch on Friday is the same man responsible for four other bank robberies in the St. Louis area since December.
The robber entered the bank about 9:15 a.m. Friday, approached a teller, displayed a handgun and demanded money. He left with an undisclosed amount.
The FBI says the same man may have robbed the same bank on Jan. 31, another Regions Bank branch on Feb. 22, the Southern Commercial Bank on Jan. 12 and First Bank on Dec. 6.
