Police Investigate Three Bank Robberies

Feb 6, 2013

Columbus police are seeking information about the men who separately robbed two banks and a credit union.

All three took place yesterday --- the first in the morning at a Chase Bank on West Fifth Avenue, where police say the suspect displayed a weapon, jumped on the teller counter demanding cash and then fled. Shortly after 1 p.m., a suspect with a scarf covering his face received an undisclosed amount of cash at Kemba Credit Union and drove off in a truck. The third robbery a few minutes later involved a man who authorities believe has taken part in at least six-area bank robberies - the latest at the United Mid-West Savings Bank on Reed Road. Investigators encourage anyone with more information on the robberies to contact police.
