The Oklahoma City Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are seeking a suspect in a bank robbery that took place Saturday morning.

The robbery occurred around 10:40 a.m. Saturday at the Mid First Bank, located at 7403 S. Pennsylvania Avenue.

According to the release, the suspect entered the bank, jumped over the teller counter and emptied several teller bank drawers.

Police say they believe the suspect may be the same one wanted for Thursday's ONB Bank robbery in Edmond. Although, they say a gun was seen during the Edmond bank robbery, but not at Mid First Bank.

Police also believe he may be the same person wanted for Saturday's Arvest Bank robbery in Moore. The robbery occurred around 11:17 a.m. Saturday at the Arvest Bank, located at 2101 S Santa Fe.
