LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The search continues for a bank robber that got away with an undisclosed amount of cash from Regions Bank.
It happened in Lafayette around 2:40 Monday afternoon.
Police said it could be in connection to another bank robbery that happened three weeks ago.
Customers echoed that same thing, but ultimately just want LPD to find the robber.
"It's hard I guess to catch these kind of things," said Regions customer, Kassie Clawson.
Two bank robberies happened with seven blocks of each other.
"I was just coming to the bank to find out why my debit card is being denied," said Regions customer, Sharon Smith.
Smith is hoping Lafayette Police can find the suspect.
"Just put the word out there," said Smith. "Get it out here and let everyone know."
The public needs to know a man walked into the Regions Bank on Earl Avenue and Union Street demanding money from the teller by showing a note. He then left with an undisclosed amount of money.
"Come on guys," said Smith. "Catch these guys. In my town it seems kind of scary. I have confidence in our Lafayette Police Department. They are doing a good job."
LPD said the investigation is active and they'll continue to rely on tips from the public and witnesses.
Both Smith and Kassie Clawson question the bank robber's motive.
"You know there's jobs out there if you're really in need; there is help out there," said Smith. "All you have to do is reach out."
"Pretty much the same exact thing," said Clawson. "You can get all the money you need if you work hard for it."
LPD is working hard to find out who did this.
Clawson said she's not worried about this incident because it seems to be a common occurrence.
"I feel like this kind of stuff happens everywhere," said Smith. "It's going to happen everywhere. There's not a 100 percent fool proof way to get rid of it."
LPD says to give them a call if you know anything about the bank robbery.
You can call 765-807-1200 or the anonymous We-tip hot line at 1-800-78-CRIME
Now police aren't sure yet whether this robbery has any ties to the August 5th Centier Bank robbery, but it is less than one and a half miles away from the Regions Bank.
You may remember in that investigation, police later found a bag that had cash in it abandoned at Sagamore and Greenbush.
But, they never said whether the cash found was the full amount of the cash taken.
