The heist occurred at the Neighbors Credit Union on New Halls Ferry Road in Florissant. Other than the robber's skin tone, below is the full description of the perp as stated on BanditTrackerStLouis.com, a joint website of local and federal law agencies. (To the right is his photo.)
The robber is believed to be 20-30 years old with a medium build. He was wearing a black hoodie and a black baseball cap.
Perusing more photos and descriptions on BanditTracker, we here at Daily RFT have stumbled upon a common similarity shared by about 90 percent of local bank robbers. Take a look at the following pictures and guess what it is!
