A fourth bank robbery on Tuesday, Aug. 2, in Wallkill may be the work of a serial bank robber who walks up to the teller and demands money, then calmly walks out, according to News 12.
The latest robbery took place at 10 a.m. at the Chase Bank branch in Orange County. Police said the suspect walked into the bank and passed the teller a note demanding money and that he had a gun, said News 12.
The suspect, described as a white male in his 20s, weighing around 180 pounds and wearing a black baseball cap, sunglasses, khaki pants and a black long-sleeve shirt, has similarities to the suspects from other recent robberies throughout the Hudson Valley, added News 12.
Similar incidents were reported last month when the M&T Bank in the Town of Wawayanda was robbed, as well as the Chase Bank in Garnerville and a TD Bank in Fishkill. In all three cases the suspect, whose description closely matched the latest suspect, entered the bank, passed the teller a note demanding cash, and left on foot without displaying a weapon.
State Police officials said they are working with local police, but could not comment further.
