December 29, 2006

Albany - The man who robbed SunTrust Bank Thursday may be the same man who held up a liquor store the night before. In fact, investigators think he may be responsible for at least five holdups.

Albany and Dougherty County Police had not shared information until WALB News 10 brought to their attention the similarities in the suspects in Wednesday's robbery at Acree Package Store and Thursday's bank holdup on Mock Road.

Dougherty County Police say there are stirking similarities not only in the suspect's appearance, but in his method of operation as well.

He's in and out of the businesses he robs within 15 to 20 seconds.

Albany Police say they have a witness who got a look at the man after the bank bag dye bomb exploded on him Thursday.

They've also released a photograph of a man they want to question in the holdups.
