Belleville police believe that the same man robbed two township banks and are asking for the public's help in finding him.
According to a press release, the man entered the Valley National bank at 11:41 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23. Wearing a red Yankees baseball cap and a blue zip up hoodie, he reportedly handed the teller a note reading "Give me money have gun." The man, described as a 5'8" man in his mid 20s, reportedly left with $3,200.
Police believe he also robbed the Valley National bank in November of 2012 and the Sovereign Bank in Newark the previous month.
