SANBORN — An incident report filed by the Niagara County Sheriff's Office shows that the man who robbed the Niagara Wheatfield Credit Union on Wednesday walked out with $6,000.

Police believe the suspect — described as a white male in his early- to mid-30s, approximately six feet tall, and 180 pounds with dark hair and scruffy facial hair — is the same man who robbed the Subway restaurant on Saunders Settlement Road two days earlier.

Wednesday, he was wearing a grayish shirt over a white shirt, blue jeans, a black baseball cap, and light brown boots. In the earlier robbery, he was wearing a black Timberland hooded jacket, blue jeans, a black baseball cap, and light brown work boots. In both instances, he was said to have gotten away in a tan colored sedan. Witnesses from the credit union robbery said they believed the car to be a 2000-2004 Chevy Malibu.

Police believe they are looking for a single suspect due to the nearly-identical descriptions of the suspect, the matching car type and color, and that fact that in both robberies, no weapon was displayed. The credit union incident report says the man "slid a handwritten note to (the teller) across the top of the counter requesting money."

The incident report from the credit union robbery said that the suspect fled north on Chew Road at a high rate of speed, information that was not previously made public.

The NCSO Criminal Investigation Bureau is now handling the case. Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator Stephen Gaydos at 438-3407.
