AUBURN -- Auburn police are looking for a bank robber suspected of knocking off at least two local banks in the past two days.

Police say the robber held up an East Main Street Key Bank today just after 11:30 a.m. The man, who is described as being in his mid-20s and roughly 5'8" tall with a medium build, implied that he had a gun and demanded money from a bank clerk.

Before he could get away, a dye pack exploded and the robber dropped all the money.

The same man is suspected of robbing a Chase Bank in Auburn on Wednesday, according to police. He was also spotted inside a Kent bank of American within an hour of Wednesday's robbery.

During Thursday's robbery, the man was wearing a Mountain Hardware jacket, a Carhart beanie, Under Armor gloves and blue jeans with white shoes.
