The man who robbed the Carson Bank in Mulvane on Monday may have done the same crime late last year.
"The FBI felt like the case was similar with the one that happened three months ago in Haysville," said David Williams, Mulvane public safety director. "The suspect does look similar. His M.O. was pretty much the same in both cases.
"We believe it very well could be the same person."
Williams said the man handed a note to a teller at the Community Bank in Haysville, just as he did at Carson Bank. He never mentioned a weapon, either. When he got the cash, he left with the money and the note.
A gas line break behind the Warming Trends building in downtown Mulvane at the same time as the Carson Bank robbery is now believed to be connected to the robber's getaway. Williams said a witness saw the now-suspected bank robber.
"He saw the individual walk down the sidewalk and go over and get into the truck," Williams said. "He saw the truck back up and backed into some gas lines and broke them. Then he left southbound on First Street, which takes you out of town."
The robber's truck is an 80s model Chevy S-10 with an extended cab and long bed. It had a red and white paint scheme, with the red faded from age.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 50s, about 5-feet-7-inches tall and 145 pounds.
