Robber strikes at banks in Hialeah and Southwest Miami

A bank robber is still at large after hitting two South Florida banks Wednesday morning, according to the FBI.

The bureau released photographs of a man they suspect committed both robberies after comparing the surveillance photos.

A man in black sunglasses and a black jacket over a gray shirt appeared first at a Bank of America branch in Hialeah at 2170 W. 68th St. around 9:30 a.m.

The other photograph shows a robber at a Chase branch in West Kendall at 11720 SW 104th St. around an hour later, at 10:24 a.m.

The man demanded money from employees at both locations. Customers were in both banks at the time of the robberies, but no one was injured. The amount of money taken is being withheld.

It is believed that the robber drove a silver or gray Chrysler 200M as the getaway vehicle.

If anyone has information about the identity of the robber, they are urged to call the FBI at 305-944-9101 or Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
