Alton police are looking for a suspect in a Monday afternoon bank robbery. The robbery took place just before 2pm yesterday, when the suspect walked into the US Bank on Washington Avenue in upper Alton. The bank was also robbed in December.
This time the suspect is described as a tall, thin white male wearing blue jeans, a black zip up hooded jacket, white sunglasses, and what Alton Police Chief of Detectives Lt. Scott Golike tells the Big Z is a distinctive red, white and black plaid hat.
Witnesses estimate the suspect’s age to be in his mid-20’s. The US Bank is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this suspect. If you have any information, call 463-3503 x 234, or the anonymous tip line at 465-5948.
