The Alpine Bank branch located inside the Schnuck’s grocery store on Charles Street has been robbed for the second time in two weeks.
An Alpine bank official confirms that late Monday afternoon, a man robbed the bank and escaped with cash. Details on the suspect were not provided by bank officials, but they did add that all customers and employees are safe.
Police did find a gun and some cash in the parking lot. A large portion of the store’s parking lot is blocked off while police retrieve evidence.
The incident is similar to another robbery at that same Alpine Bank branch on July 5th where a bank robber also escaped with cash. No arrests have been made in that bank robbery.
