A bank robber linked to three recent bank heists inside area Hy-Vee grocery stores now is being linked to similar crimes in four other locations.

According to a news release this afternoon from Moline police, it appears a series of bank robberies in Edwardsville and Collinsville, Ill., and Janesville and Kenosha, Wis., are connected to the same suspect wanted in connection with bank robberies in Moline, Milan and Bettendorf.

If anyone can identify this person, they are asked to call the Moline Police Department at 309-797-0401 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad-Cities at 309-762-9500.

The most recent local robbery occurred Sept. 26 at a bank branch located inside the Hy-Vee grocery store in Milan. Milan Police Chief Mark Beckwith described the robber as being white, in his 20s, approximately 5-feet, 10-inches tall, 220 to 240 pounds, blond or light-brown hair and wearing a tan or khaki hat, maroon or dark red hoodie and sunglasses. The suspect also was clean-shaven.

Moline police are still looking for a man who robbed the Wells Fargo Bank inside the Hy-Vee store at 4218 Avenue of the Cities on Aug. 20.

Bettendorf police also are looking for a man who they say robbed the Valley Bank branch in the Hy-Vee store at Devils Glen Road on Sept. 14.

    This is a much better picture, for some reason this guy looks familiar. Maybe just because I saw the other grainy pictures. Hmmm

    Hard to believe this guy has knocked over 6 or 7 places now and none of the cameras outside of the store have caught the vehicle.
