Same robber likely hit two banks

Spokane police think the gunman who robbed a Northwest Boulevard bank last month also robbed a bank in December.

Photos released Thursday show a masked man in a red hooded coat with black trim robbing the Sterling Savings Bank, 3000 S. Grand Ave., at gunpoint Dec. 22.

Another surveillance photo from the Feb. 13 robbery at Chase Bank, 2215 Northwest Blvd., shows a masked man with a gun wearing a blue hooded coat with black trim.

The robber is described as white with a medium build, 5-foot-10 to 6 feet tall. Anyone with information on a possible suspect is asked to call Detective Chet Gilmore at (509) 622-5874.
