Police in Orange County's Town of Newburgh say they may be seeking the same man being sought by Suffolk police for an East Northport bank robbery.
A man who strongly resembles the gray-haired, heavyset man seen in surveillance camera photos taken during a robbery at the People's United Bank in East Northport June 30 robbed the Orange County Trust Co. Bank Wednesday, July 6.
Aside from a similar physical appearance, the robber in both cases wore a dark ball cap and threatened tellers with a black handgun. He also carried a backpack to tote stolen cash.
Police described the man as between 55-65 years old and between 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall.
