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.
Police are hoping store surveillance images can help catch a pair of thieves who targeted an elderly woman at a St. Charles Walmart.
Police say a woman posed as a personal shopper, telling the victim that she worked for the store. She helped the woman with her purchases, and offered to help her load groceries into her car. While loading groceries, the woman reportedly took the victim's wallet from her purse, then got into a car being driven by a male accomplice.
The victim lost several hundred dollars in cash.
