A man believed to have robbed Farmer’s Bank of Milton in La Grange in late April once again robbed the bank earlier this week.

Police believe the unidentified man robbed the bank on Highway 53 at 11:20 a.m. Monday. The previous robbery occurred April 23.

According to police, the suspect, a white male, gave a note to a bank clerk demanding money on Monday. He then exited the bank with an undetermined amount of money and a red dye pack.

Police said the suspect should be covered in red dye, after the dye pack went off in the suspect’s initial vehicle in a parking lot. The suspect then left in an older model two-door grey vehicle, police said. The money from Monday’s robbery was recovered in a parking lot where the first vehicle was, police said.

The suspect was wearing a white t-shirt with a Nautica logo and a blue ball-cap.

Police believe the suspect is involved with several bank robberies in La Grange and east Jefferson County.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact the La Grange Police Department at 222-0111.
