ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- Police in two suburban St. Louis communities are on the hunt for bank robbers.  They are definitely two different men, but they share one habit. 

Bank robbers on the run are a theme in this Metro’s Most Wanted.  But in both of these cases they made the mistake of having their pictures taken.

We begin in Troy, Missouri where a man walked into the Community State Bank about 11:45 in the morning.  He handed the teller a note saying he was armed and demanded cash.  What a boy scout, police say he even brought his own black nylon bag to carry it in.

He's about 5'10" with a medium build and strawberry blond to light brown hair. Witnesses say he was wearing some kind of Hawaiian shirt underneath his tan button down. They’re planning his next luau for the county jail. 

In St. Charles County they’re looking for a guy who hit the Pulaski Bank on Zumbehl on May 15.  He did the same thing as the other guy, handed them a note claiming he had a gun.  He too took cash.  He also brought his own bag, his was a white grocery sack.  He went running across a nearby parking lot to get away. 

Police say this guy is about 200 pounds with a muscular build.  You can see his ball cap and his tan or grey Aeropostale t-shirt. 

As always if you have any information on these cases, you can contact the local police department or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS. That's 866-371-8477. There is a reward and you can remain anonymous.
