Jan 16, 2018

A second bank robbery in Grand Rapids in the past four days has police on the hunt for a suspect. The bank robbery took place at Macatawa Bank on Burton Street near the Brenton Village Shopping Center around noon on Tuesday.

Witnesses describe the suspect as being a white male in his 50's, at least 6' tall and having a thin build. He was wearing a winter hat, a tan jacket, dark jeans, and dark shoes. He entered the bank alone and presented a note to the teller.

This is the second bank robbery in Grand Rapids in four days. According to the GRPD, a different Macatawa Bank had been robbed on the city’s northeast side. The suspect in that robbery is also a white man at least 6’ feet tall. However, police will not confirm it’s the same person at this time.

The Grand Rapids Major Case Team Detectives, in conjunction with the FBI, will be conducting the investigation.
