A possible serial bank robber may be targeting banks inside area grocery stores.
Richmond Heights Police say a man held up the US Bank inside the Schnucks Store on Clayton Road about 6:30 Tuesday evening. Police said the suspect showed the teller a threatening note demanding money and walked out of the store with an unknown amount of cash.
The suspect is described as a white man, 5'6" to 6' with a thin build.
Police believe the man may also be responsible for robbing the First Bank inside a Brentwood Dierberg's on Saturday.
Some Crestwood residents say city leaders are dragging their feet on a plan to redevelop the shuttered Crestwood Plaza. Dozens of people marched from the old mall to City Hall Tuesday to express their concern.
Developer Centrum Properties wants to turn the site into an entertainment center with a movie theater, bowling alley, restaurants and retail stores. But their plan calls for $22 million in taxpayer subsidies -- a figure Crestwood Mayor Jeff Schlink says he and many aldermen are not "comfortable" with.
"If we're going to grant and issue those tax breaks for them," Schlink said, "they're going to have to be done on terms that we feel are reasonable for the city."
Centrum officials say if they can't work things out, they may have to sell the land one parcel at a time.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Federal health investigators have confirmed that ticks carry a new virus that sickened two Missouri men.
Scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suspected ticks were a likely source of the Heartland virus, which was named for the St. Joseph hospital where the men were treated in 2009.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a new study authored by CDC scientist Harry Savage says samples from ticks at the patients' farms and a nearby conservation area have tested positive for the Heartland virus. The study was published Monday in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
There are no treatments for Heartland virus, which causes low white blood cell counts, fever, chills, diarrhea and other symptoms. Both patients recovered after nearly two weeks in the hospital.
WILDWOOD, Mo. (AP) - The St. Louis County town of Wildwood has given first-round approval to an ordinance requiring decontamination of properties where methamphetamine labs have been found.
Half of the states in the U.S. have passed laws requiring cleanup from meth labs, but not Missouri, even though the state has ranked No. 1 in meth lab seizures every year but one over the past decade.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Wildwood and at least two other St. Louis-area towns - Festus and Crestwood - have passed their own cleanup ordinances. Jefferson County also has a decontamination law.
The Wildwood proposal will become law if approved at a second reading.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri will pay a southern California search firm $100,000 to guide the hiring process for the next chancellor of its Columbia campus.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates of suburban Los Angeles will screen prospective candidates to succeed Chancellor Brady Deaton, who is retiring in November. His replacement will be chosen by the university's Board of Curators and system President Tim Wolfe.
The California company's recent work includes the chancellor search at the University of Wisconsin in Madison and presidential searches at Carnegie Mellon and California State University, Los Angeles.
As with its recent presidential searches, Missouri won't disclose the names of finalists. Wolfe has set two meetings this week to solicit comments on desired qualifications for the next MU chancellor.

It wasn't exactly a "beauty" pageant but local environmentalists say that was the idea as they held a mock pageant of their own. They gathered along the St Louis riverfront at Poplar Street and S. Leonor K. Sullivan Blvd to name what they consider the most dangerous toxic water polluters in St. Louis.
Members of the Sierra Club from St. Louis, Franklin and Jefferson counties held a “Miss and Mr. Toxic Water Pollution” pageant. Residents dressed in hazmat suits represented Ameren’s coal-fired power plants in the St. Louis metro area. They are trying to get the EPA's attention about what they say is the dumping of arsenic, lead, boron and selenium from Ameren Missouri’s Meramec, Sioux, Rush Island and Labadie coal-fired power plants into Missouri waterways.
The groups, Sierra Club Beyond Coal and Sierra Club Missouri say they want stronger federal standards limiting toxic water pollution from coal-fired power plants. The mock pageant coincides with a new national report released by a coalition of environmental and clean water groups, including the Sierra Club. The report reviewed nearly 400 coal plant water permits across the country and its findings highlight the need for strong national coal plant water pollution standards.
The environmental groups claim existing guidelines written to limit toxics discharged from coal plants do not cover many of the worst pollutants such as those discharged in the Mississippi, Missouri and Meramec Rivers, and have not been updated in more than 30 years.
In April 2013, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed the first ever national standards for toxics dumped into waterways from coal plants.
