Authorities in eastern Iowa say a recent bank robbery could be connected to a robbery last year. Cedar Rapids Police responded to a robbery at Hills Bank on the city’s northeast side at 3905 Blairsferry Road NE at 5 p.m. last Friday.
The suspect was described as a white man, about six-feet tall, who entered the bank wearing a tan jacket, a mask covering his nose and mouth, sunglasses and a beige hat with a green logo. He demanded money and left with an undisclosed amount of cash. He did not show a weapon.
Marion Police say a Wells Fargo Bank (at 340 7th Ave) was robbed by a man matching the same description on September 4, 2010. Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to call Cedar Rapids Police or Linn County Crime Stoppers.
