Police see link in three robberies

From Staff ReportsDecember 6, 2006 

— Police think the same man may be responsible for three robberies of bank tellers inside area grocery stores in recent months.

The SunTrust inside the Kroger at 3457 Hillsborough Road in Durham was robbed last week and in July. The SunTrust inside the Harris Teeter on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Chapel Hill was robbed Nov. 3.

In each case, a man handed the teller a note demanding money and implying he had a weapon.

Also in each case, the description of the robber was similar.

Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said there are other similarities in the robberies that police are not releasing.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 683-1200.
