Reward Offered in Series of Bank Robberies
DES PERES - U.S. Bank is offering a $10,000 reward in the effort to solve a series of bank robberies inside St. Louis-area Schnucks grocery stores.
KMOV-TV reports that the latest robbery was Wednesday at a Schnucks on Manchester Road in west St. Louis County. Surveillance photos showed a male suspect wearing what appeared to be a wig.
Similar robberies have occurred at U.S. Bank branches inside Schnucks stores in High Ridge and Maryland Heights. In each case, the suspect demanded money and gave the teller a threatening note.
Police believe a man and woman are working together and taking turns holding up the banks.
