Law enforcement says they’re making some headway in finding the suspect involved in the Five Star Bank robbery that happened in Pavillion on Friday.
The suspect described as a Afican American male, in his mid-twenties, medium build and about 5' 8" tall. He entered the bank, claimed he had a gun and then made off with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured during the heist.
Genesee County Deputy Chief Jerome Brewster said he’s pretty confident they will make an arrest in this case.
“We know that there was a little bit of for thought put into the plans. There was a vehicle stolen from RT.19 and 490 that was later used to commit the actual robbery. We did find that abandoned a mile away,” said Brewster.
Brewster said that vehicle is being processed for finger prints and DNA Monday. He said this robbery could possibly be linked to other robberies.
“In our collaboration with other police agencies it would appear as though there may be a connection of atleast two other robberies in the recent past, one in MonroeCounty and one in the adjoining county beyond that,” said Brewster.
Brewster said police are sure there was at least one accomplice involved in the heist.
