Today's robbery is the latest in a string of robberies in our area.
"I think the timing is just very unfortunate for us, certainly we'd like to solve all of these as quickly as we can, and we'd like to prevent any from the future, but that's just not possible," said Bowling Green Police Officer Ronnie Ward.
At about 3:45 Wednesday afternoon, police say a white male in a thin, white plastic suit, carrying a pistol, made out with an unknown amount of money from the U.S. bank on Lain avenue in Bowling Green, he escaped, and police have not located him.
"No one was injured, and we're always greatful for that. Right now, we're trying to locate either the items he was wearing of him," said Ward.
This is the second robbery in less than a week, following last week's robbery at BB&T, and it's the third in less than two months after American Bank and Trust got robbed in June.
Now the question is, are they linked in anyway?
Police right now say it's too early to tell, but are making efforts to see if there is a connection.
"We'll take the things that we have from this robbery, compare it not only to robberies that have happened in Bowling Green, but robberies across the United States and see if there is any simliarities in any of those to link those together," said Ward.
Now police will begin doing just that, looking for any links.
Police say he left out the back door and ran across the field behind the bank, and in some of the other recent robberies, police say they are following all leads to find the person who did it.
