Police investigating series of bank robberies in Boise, Meridian

BOISE - Police are searching for a man suspected of robbing a bank and two credit unions in the span of just over an hour on Monday.

The first robbery happened a little before 11 a.m. at the Bank of the West branch near the intersection of Emerald Street and Maple Grove Road.

Then at about 11:50 a.m. a second robbery was reported - at Pioneer Federal Credit Union on Fairview in Meridian. Witnesses there told investigators that a man entered the bank and handed a note to the teller stating that he had a gun and demanding money.

About 20 minutes later, a robbery was reported at Clarity Credit Union on South Meridian Road near the intersection with Franklin Road.

Police believe the same suspect was behind all three robberies. He is described as a Hispanic man in his early 30s with a dark goatee, between 5-feet-3-inches and 5-feet-6-inches tall, and weighing 135 pounds. He was wearing a blue and white baseball cap, sunglasses, a plaid shirt, and dark pants.

Meridian police said the suspect was carrying a white paper bag. He may be driving a black or dark grey, small SUV or crossover-type vehicle.

Investigators said the suspect is believed to be connected to multiple other bank robberies.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
