On August 6, a white man entered the TD Bank located at 143 S. Main St. and passed a note to the bank teller demanding money. He got the money and left. A K9 search was not successful. The suspect was described as about 40 years old with a slender build, very short dark brown hair, about 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, and was wearing a blue polo t-shirt and checkered golf shorts.

The same day, a different white man entered the First Niagara Bank located at 55 S. Main St. He too handed the teller a note demanding money, and left the bank with the cash. He threatened to shoot the teller, but never showed a weapon.
