Police in Carbon County believe a man who robbed a bank Thursday afternoon in Lehighton may be the same man responsible for a robbery in Lehigh County last week.

Investigators said just before 3 p.m. a man wearing dark-rimmed glasses and a gray Nittany Lions cap robbed the PNC Bank on Blakeslee Boulevard Drive East.

Police said the man may be the same person who robbed the KNBT Bank in Schnecksville on May 24.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to contact Mahoning Township Police at 570-386-2241.
