A man who robbed a Janesville bank Thursday resembles the man who robbed a Paddock Lake bank in July, the Rock County Sheriff’s Department said in a press release.

The Paddock Lake incident occured on July 30. The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department said a man entered the Community State Bank at Highways 50 and 75/83 at about 2:30 p.m. and gave a teller a note saying he had a gun. He took an undisclosed amount of money and fled in a small silver car across Highway 75 and into the parking lot of a neighboring gas station/convenience store before exiting that lot and heading west on Highway 50

In the Janesville incident, at 9:14 a.m., Rock County Deputies were dispatched to the First National Bank at 2636 South Highway 51, Rock Township, for a robbery that just occurred. Information was given out that the suspect left southbound driving a tan compact style car. As deputies were coming into the area, they were unable to locate the suspect vehicle. Upon arrival at First National, investigation reveals that a white male who appeared to be possibly in his mid-twenties handed a teller a note demanding money. No weapon was displayed and the suspect left with an undetermined amount of money. The white male is described as possibly 5”10-6”0, approximately 250-275 lbs. The suspect was wearing a brown in color long sleeve sweater, blue jeans, black frame sunglasses and a tan colored woven style hat with an unknown emblem on front.

The desciption of the Paddock Lake robbery suspect is white male, about 5’10” to 6’0” in height and weighing about 225-260 pounds with  blond or light brown hair and an approximate age of 18-25. Eye color is unknown. Surveilance photos from the Paddock Lake bank also the suspect wearing a similar hat to the Janesville suspect.

People with any information about the crime or the suspect may call Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department Detective Jon Hasselbrink at 262-605-5102 or 262-605-5137.
