ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The FBI is asking the community for help finding two bank robbers. 

Even though there were similarities, the FBI sais the two bank robberies in Albany last week were not connected.

The first, on Wednesday, September 7, a robber held up the DOCO Credit Union on Rosebrier Avenue around 12:30 p.m. 

The man got away with an undisclosed amount of money and no one was injured in the process.

In another incident, police said one robber walked into Peoples South Bank on Westover Boulevard a little after 11:00 Friday morning. 

Officials said the suspect walked into the bank, and gave a note to the teller demanding money. The teller gave the robber some cash and he walked out.  
Police have not confirmed if he was armed.

The suspect drove away in a white early 2000's year Chevrolet Impala. The car has a horseshoe logo decal on the bottom left hand side of the rear windshield.

The FBI said the two robbers both handed notes to the bank tellers, and neither showed any weapon during their robberies, or wore a mask.

The FBI also said the two robberies in the same week was mostly likely a coincidence.

"I don't think there is any significance to these happening that close together.  We don't think they are connected.  They are two different robberies, but I wouldn't read anything now into it than that," said Kevin Rowson, FBI Public Affairs Specialist. 

If you have any information about these two bank robberies, call CrimeSTOPPERS at (229) 436-TIPS, or the FBI.
