Raleigh, N.C. — Authorities are investigating a bank robbery that happened at a Wells Fargo branch late Monday morning and say the robber closely resembles a man wanted in connection with two other area robberies.
Monday's robbery happened shortly after 11 a.m. at 601 Oberlin Road – the same location of a Jan. 8 robbery and about a mile away from a Wells Fargo branch robbed Dec. 8.
Police described the man wanted in Monday's robbery as having salt-and-pepper-colored hair, a thin build and standing 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall. He was wearing a black jacket and dark pants.
Descriptions from the two other robberies involved a black man with a light complexion between 40 to 50 years old.
In the Jan. 8 crime, the man was wearing a black leather ball cap, black jacket, a white dress shirt and a dark tie. In the Dec. 8 robbery, he was wearing a New York Giants cap and a gray hooded sweatshirt.
