Edwardsville police released video surveillance footage Wednesday from a robbery of First Mid-Illinois Bank and Trust on Illinois 157.

Investigators believe the bank robbery, which happened at 2:35 p.m. Monday, is connected to one in Glen Carbon on July 26.

Police Chief Jay Keeven told the BND police are “fairly certain” the same individual robbed both banks.

That individual is described as a white man around 6 feet tall with prominent scarring around his mouth.

Anyone with information regarding either robbery can call Detective Derrick Fitzgerald at 618-656-2131.
