— A man who robbed a SunTrust bank inside a Raleigh supermarket on Wednesday is suspected of having robbed other area banks recently, police said Thursday.

A man passed a note demanding money to a teller at the SunTrust branch in the Kroger store at 8345 Creedmoor Road at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said. He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The man is described as a black man in his 30s to 40s, about 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, with a stocky build and dark complexion. He has a beard and mustache and was wearing a dark blue, plaid shirt, blue jeans, white tennis shoes, a black hat with a white or silver logo on it and large-framed sunglasses.

Raleigh police said they believe the same man robbed the Wood Forest bank inside the Walmart at 10500 Glenwood Ave. at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday. Investigators said they also think he might have committed multiple recent bank robberies in Durham.

Anyone with information about the hold-ups or the suspected robber is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 919-834-HELP.

    "Whats the difference in this guy robbing banks,and the democrats robbing the taxpayers."

    ha, partisan hacks, have to make everything political, even when it has nothing to do with politics. (watch out, your bias is showing)

    Hmm, that shirt [plaid??] and hat look pretty Carolina Blue to me! So either the lighting at the Suntrust really stinks or their cameras are low res/quality!

    Only one difference. He has the cahunas to tell you to your face before he robs you. The Democrats do it behind your back.
