Lt. John Faine of the sheriff’s office said detectives from Warren County did contact Monroe police shortly after the robbery to determine if there was a connection, but further investigation determined the suspects are not the same person.
“We have video of our guy casing the bank at the same time the Monroe (robbery) happened,” Faine said.

Both law enforcement agencies say detectives are continuing to investigate the robberies.
The subject from the Monroe bank robbery fled on foot, and a Butler County Sheriff’s Office dog searched the area and tracked the scent to Ohio Avenue, where it was lost, police said. He may have gotten into a vehicle parked near the bank, according to police.
Monroe police described the suspect as a white man wearing blue jeans, a blue hooded sweatshirt and a face covering. Anyone with information should call police at 513-360-2206.
