Delaware County Sheriff's Office investigators are searching for a man responsible for the third Orange Township bank robbery in the past 30 days.

A man walked into First Merit Bank, 1156 E. Powell Road, shortly after 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11, and handed the teller a note demanding cash, according to a sheriff's office news release. The man fled from the scene in a black or dark blue Chevrolet Impala, heading east on Powell Road after the robbery.

The suspect, who was captured on surveillance video, has been described as a fair-skinned white man who is slightly taller than 6 feet and weighs about 180 pounds. The suspect was wearing a black baseball cap with a letter C logo, a blue denim shirt and women's sunglasses.

The suspect had the word "love" tattooed on the knuckles of his left hand.

The robbery at First Merit Bank comes after two similar incidents that occurred in July at the Key Bank branch in Orange Township, 8609 Owenfield Drive.

An unknown man entered the Key Bank July 15 and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash after handing a note to the teller.

That suspect was described as a white man, about 6 feet tall about 200 pounds. The man, who has not been caught, had reddish-brown hair and wore a tan sun hat and a brown or green hooded sweatshirt during the robbery.

The same Key Bank branch was robbed July 27 by another man who handed a teller a note demanding money. Sheriff's deputies arrested Michael P. Dice, 59, of Marion on Aug. 4 on a robbery charge stemming from that incident.

Authorities do not think Dice was involved in the first Key Bank robbery. Dice, who is currently incarcerated in Delaware County jail, faces a charge of robbery, a second-degree felony.

Anyone with information about the July 15 robbery of Key Bank or the Aug. 11 robbery of First Merit Bank should call the Delaware County Sheriff's Office at 740-833-2800.
