Police in Madison and St. Clair County are searching for a suspect who robbed banks inside two Schnucks grocery stores on Thursday. The U.S. Banks in both Collinsville and Edwardsville Schnucks were hit yesterday by the same man according to police. He did not display a weapon and no one was injured, although he did indicate he was armed. The robberies occurred within an hour of each other Thursday afternoon.
The suspect in both robberies was described as a heavyset white male believed to be in his mid- to late-twenties standing about 6-feet talk. He was wearing blue jeans, a light blue long sleeved shirt, a red ball cap and Oakley style sunglasses. He left each store in an unknown direction. The Edwardsville robbery took place around 1:30pm, and the robbery at the Collinsville location took place just after 2pm. Anyone with information on the suspect can call Crime Stoppers at 866-371-8477.
