Police believe one man has robbed three financial institutions in two states, including branches in Leesburg and Granger.
The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department, the Berrien Springs-Oronoka Township Police Department in Michigan and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are asking for the public’s help in identifying him.
The Leesburg branch of Farmers State Bank was robbed July 12. The suspect at that time was described as white, from 6-foot to 6-foot-2, in his middle to late 50s. He was wearing a ball cap, had grey or white hair and sideburns, with either a beard or goatee that appeared to come to a two-prong or fork-style point at the chin.
In the surveillance video, police said, the suspect has a gaited walk or limp and wore tennis shoes. A silver or gray station wagon, possibly a Chevy Cavalier or Escort from the early to mid 1990s, was seen in the area before the robbery.
Police said Friday the same person and car were involved in robberies at the CommunityWide Federal Credit Union of Granger and the Honor Credit Union in Berrien Springs.
FBI officials in Michigan provided Kosciusko County sheriff’s detectives with security video images.
