  • Public Affairs Specialist Bridget Patton (816) 512-8200

The FBI, Moberly Police, Sedalia Police, and Rolla Police believe the same robber held up the following three banks in Missouri:

  1. 03/13/2009
    Commerce Bank
    1415 North Morley
    Moberly, MO
  2. 08/10/2009
    Excel Bank
    917 S. Limit Street
    Sedalia, MO
  3. 12/18/2009
    Town and Country Bank (Rolla North Branch)
    1804 North Bishop
    Rolla, MO

Robber Description:

  • White male
  • 40 to 50 years old
  • Heavy set weighing about 300 pounds
  • 5’7” – 6’ tall
  • “Salt and pepper” facial hair

The robber not only looks similar based on surveillance photos, but the method of operation and get-away vehicle were also similar. In each case, the robber approached the counter, pulled out a handgun, pointed it at the teller and demanded money. The robber then took an undisclosed amount of cash and stuffed it into a bag. In the first two cases, the robber was seen getting into a 2003/2004 white Dodge minivan. In the last and most recent case, a white minivan was seen near the bank in Rolla.
