Modesto police are investigating two bank robberies and an attempt to rob a third, all within an hour of each other yesterday.
A black man, about 5 feet 11 inches tall demanded money from a cashier at a “Bank of the West” branch, but was told there was no cash at that station. Police say he walked to a “US Bank” branch three blocks away and robbed it of an undisclosed amount.
A second suspect, described as a 30 to 40 year old black man demanded money at the drive up window to a different “US Bank” branch. He had a medium build and was accompanied by a 30 to 40 year old white woman. They left in a dark blue older Nissan. Anyone who can help find either suspect is asked to call Modesto Police.
