Police say a second robbery took place at the bank on June 10, 2010 at about 10:53 am. They say the bank was robbed by a black man in his late 20s to early 30s who is between 5’6” and 5’9” tall. He is 220-230 pounds with a stocky build, and was wearing a red baseball cap, a black t-shirt with a design on the front showing two large, multi-colored hand prints with the world ‘COOGI,’ black pants, and black sneakers.
