Toms River Police are still searching for the men who robbed two banks on the same day within 90 minutes.

It is unknown if the two separate robberies, which both occurred Friday evening, are related, according to Chief Mitch Little. Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspects through surveillance photos released Monday.

In the first robbery, which occurred at 4:36 p.m., a man gave a note to the teller at the TD Bank branch on Mule Road demanding money, then fled. He is described as a black male in his late 20s to early 30s who was wearing a green jacket with his hood up, along with a wool hat and sunglasses.

The second robbery occurred at the Santander Bank on Route 37. In that robbery, the suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s to early 30s.

Anyone with information on either robbery is being asked to contact Detective Randy Petrick at 732-349-0150, ext. 1235.

while profiling, don't forget to include enticements - barrier islands plundered after hurricane while police keep armed homeowners away - boardwalk burns down because no one is home - federal hurricane relief corruption files stolen from the wolf's closet with a rock thrown through a ground floor window - TOMS RIVER <> EASY PICKINGS

@grace I wasn't referring to @Mac posts, he appears to be an equal opportunity basher. It's some of the other posts, you know how I feel on this issue. We've had our disagreements Grace, but you are always respectful of others opinions and we've been on many of the same threads (LOL). I'll talk with you soon, OK, my dear, Good Night!!
