Two credit unions were robbed within 30 minutes of each other in East Orange County Saturday, and now detectives with the Orange County Sheriff's office are trying to figure out if the robberies are connected.
The first robbery happened at the Fairwinds Credit Union located at 3133 N. Alafaya Trail. Detectives said the teller told them that a man wearing a T-shirt, black baggy shorts and a black wig walked into the bank at 10 a.m. and passed a note demanding money to the teller.
However, the suspect did not show a weapon. The suspect then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, but they think he may have eventually jumped into an older model light colored Honda Accord.
Which, coincidentally, was seen leaving the scene of the second bank robbery. That one also happened at a Fairwinds Credit Union, but this time at the 1351 S. Semoran Blvd. location.
Officials said at 10:30 a.m. a black male in his late 20s, approximately 160 lbs, and about 5'05," shaved head, and black shorts entered the bank and he also passed a note demanding cash.
This suspect also got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. The Orange County Sheriff's office is actively investigating this incident.
Anyone with information in the two robberies should call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS.
