However, the FBI said it has been determined there is no connection between the robbery at the IBC Bank on March 10 and other robberies at ICB Bank branches in Bethany. The FBI said it is seeking the public's help in identifying the person responsible for the robberies on March 9 and March 10 at IBC Bank at 7723 N.W. 23rd Street in Bethany.

The subject in those robberies was described as a white male adult, 30 to 40 years old, about six feet tall, and a thin build. The FBI said the suspect wore tan pants, a light blue collared shirt, a dark blue or black blazer and black knit hat with a blue cap over the knit hat. After handing a note to the teller and demanding money, the male subject left in a green 1990's-model Chevrolet Corvette.

Anyone with information was urged to call the Oklahoma City FBI at (405) 290-7770.
