Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY - Authorities with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Moore Police Department and the Oklahoma City Police Department are searching for a suspect believed to have robbed three banks in the span of three days.

Shortly after 10:30 a.m. the MidFirst Bank in the 7400 block of S. Pennsylvania Ave. was robbed by a suspect described as a white male in his mid-forties.

The suspect is described as being approximately 5' 8'' to 6' tall with a stocky build,  he has brown and gray hair in a pony tail that was pinned up and he was wearing a predominantly black OSU Nike jacket with "OSU" and the Nike swoop in orange, black baggy pants and rectangular sunglasses.  

A release for OKC police states the robbery jumped over the teller counter and emptied several bank drawers then fled on foot.  It was unknown in what direction.

Moore Police Department Detective Scott Carpenter says the suspect appears to be the same who robbed an Arvest Bank branch in Moore Saturday.

Police say around 11 a.m. Saturday the suspect entered the Arvest Bank at 2101 S. Sante Fe and jumped over the counter while demanding the teller to open her money drawer.

The suspect showed the teller a gun in his waistband and the teller then opened the drawer. The suspect then left the bank.

The man is also suspected in the robbery of an ONB branch in Edmond Thursday evening.

Police ask anyone with information concerning the Mid First Bank robbery in Oklahoma City or the ONB Bank Robbery in Edmond to contact the FBI at 405-290-7770 or OKCPD Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
