JACKSON COUNTY (KWWL) - Two banks involved in robberies the past year are collectively offering $50,000 in reward money to find who's responsible.

Someone robbed the Citizens State Bank in Oxford Junction twice in six months.  The first robbery happened February 27, 2013, and the second happened July 30.  A third robbery happened at the Ohnward Bank and Trust in Baldwin on January 31 of this year.

Investigators believe the same suspects are responsible for all three robberies.  They say it could be one person, or two people working together.  Investigators think the suspects lived in the area at the time, because rural gravel roads were used as an escape route after the crimes happened.

The suspect(s) used a different vehicle in each robbery, but all are described as either work trucks or farm trucks. 

Citizens State bank is offering a single $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible in the robberies.  The Ohnward Bank and Trust is also offering a $25,000 reward.
