MILWAUKEE- Milwaukee police need help finding a suspect who robbed the U.S. Bank on South Howell Ave. earlier this month. Police are concerned he may rob again.
That U.S. Bank has been robbed twice so far this year.
David Anderson of the Milwaukee Police Robbery Unit told TODAY'S TMJ4 that most bank robbers don't get much during their thefts.
"They're coming out with hundreds, and maybe a thousand but not a lot of currency is taken from banks," said Anderson.
Back on August 1, the suspect walked into the U.S. Bank on South Howell Ave. The suspect passed a note to the teller before leaving in a Chrysler.
"He calmly walked out of the bank. And, in fact, he even told her to call police," described Anderson.
While money is the obvious factor in this most recent robbery, Detective Anderson told TODAY'S TMJ4 there's another connection.
"The main motivation is always someone who has a drug problem or alcohol problem or owe a drug debt," explained Detective Anderson.
As for the guy who robbed the U.S. Bank, Milwaukee police are offering a cash reward for information leading to his arrest.
