CLEVELAND CIB detectives are investigating a possible link between armed robberies at Thornlands and Victoria Point last week and a bank holdup at Ascot in Brisbane's northern suburbs yesterday.
Wynnum District Inspector Gerry Costello said police had not confirmed the same man was responsible for the holdups at BWS Thornlands, the ANZ Bank at Victoria Point and the Westpac bank robbery on Thursday .
Acting officer in charge of Wynnum District CIB, Senior Sergeant Justin Suffolk, said the bank on Racecourse Road, Ascot, had been robbed around 1pm.
"It appears he was using a very similar weapon to the other armed robberies, but obviously he was wearing different clothing," he said.
"We're not certain it was the same man."
The man who robbed the Ascot bank is described to be Caucasian, around 180cm tall and of a proportionate build. He was wearing a green cap, a green and blue work shirt, sunglasses and dark blue pants.
At the Thornlands liquor store holdup on June 21, the robber was described to be in his 20s, 170cm tall, of a muscular build and had a tanned complexion. He was wearing a grey zip-up hooded jumper, blue denim jeans, white shoes and a baseball cap with a white peak. His face was covered by a red bandana.
The man who robbed the ANZ Victoria Point bank on June 22 was described as Caucasian, medium build and 175cm tall. He was wearing black track pants with white stripes, a light coloured baseball cap, a dark grey knitted jumper and white shoes.
