A robbery at the West Allis Tri City Bank inside Pick 'n Save Tuesday afternoon may be related to two other armed robberies at a convenience and liquor stores, according to a release from West Allis Acting Chief of Police Charles Padgett.
A man police described as tall and large-nosed went into the bank at 6760 W. National Ave. about 2 p.m. and held up a note that said, "This is a robbery," then fled toward S. 70 St. There were no injuries and no one saw a weapon. The suspect is black and was wearing a dark coat with a "Lite" logo on the left chest, a black brimmed hat with a Celtic cross, and may be left-handed, the release said.
Stickups at a convenience store at S. 85th St. and W. Greenfield Ave. in March and a liquor store at S. 78th St. ad W. Becher St. in mid-April may be related, Padgett said. The suspect in those was armed with a semiautomatic handgun and drove away in a silver, four-door car, possibly a Nissan Maxima.
Anyone with information can call the West Allis Police Department at (414) 302-8000 or anonymously at 476-CASH.

The show doesn't allow him to say anything before the show airs about whether he was a winner, but Giblin said he has been watching the game show ever since he was a kid. That's when Monty Hall was emcee.
But today's emcee, Emmy Award-winner Wayne Brady, is a wonderful successor, Giblin said.
