Police are investigating two bank robberies that took place hours apart on Monday.
The first happened around 11:30 AM at the First Federal Savings Bank in Warsaw, where a man made off with an unknown amount of money. Police believe the suspect in this robbery is the same as the one in the previous two robberies in the past six weeks, one on December 3 at Indiana Lakes Federal Credit Union and one on November 12 also at First Federal Savings Bank.
The next robbery happened just after 2:00 pm at Lake City Bank in Pierceton, where a man displayed a handgun and ordered bank employees to the ground. The suspect here also made off with an unknown amount of money in a red drawstring backpack.
Police did not state if the two robberies were connected. There have been four bank robberies in the past six weeks in Kosciusko County, three in Warsaw alone.
