Grass Valley police are asking the public's help in identifying two men sought in connection with two separate bank robberies that occurred in February.
The first was reported at 2:47 p.m. Feb. 12 at the Bank of the West on Brunswick Road, and the second, at 3:13 p.m. Feb. 22 at Tri Counties Bank on Sutton Way, according to a Police Department Facebook post. It is not known whether the two robberies are related, but in each case the robber presented a teller with a note demanding money and each man then left with cash, the news release said.
The man sought in the Bank of the West robbery is described as in his 30s, 6 feet to 6 feet, 2 inches tall, with a dark complexion, dark hair and dark facial hair, and a thin build. The man in the Tri Counties Bank robbery is described as white, in his 20s, 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with a thin build.
