FBI releases photos after banks robbed minutes apart

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – The FBI is searching for a potential repeat bank robber.

Authorities released surveillance photos from two bank robberies that took place in Miami-Dade County just minutes apart.

The first robbery took place Monday at a Bank of America branch located on Northwest 54th Street in Brownsville.

Investigators said a man wearing a gray shirt, who made no effort to disguise his face, walked into the bank just before 3 p.m.

After demanding money from a teller, the thief took off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

About 20 minutes later, what appeared to be the same man walked into a Chase Bank on Southwest 27th Avenue near Little Havana. This time he was wearing a light gray, collared shirt.
