By BULLETIN STAFF REPORTS -
Henry County Sheriff’s Office officials think there may be a connection between the robbery of a Ridgeway bank and the attempted robbery of a bank in North Carolina.
Both incidents occurred Wednesday. Security camera photos from a Carter Bank & Trust branch in Ridgeway and a High Point Bank branch in Kernersville, N.C., show similar-looking suspects wearing similar clothes.
A sheriff’s office release stated that in the incidents, “the method of operation and the description of the suspect are both very similar.”
Anyone who recognizes the suspect or has information about the Ridgeway robbery is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 638-8751 or Crimestoppers at 632-7463.
Further details will be published in the Martinsville Bulletin on Friday.
