Three bank robberies, all three on Tuesdays, but all three by different suspects.

In the first case, the would-be robber probably wishes he had better penmanship.

On March 27th, 2012, just before 6 p.m., a suspect entered the Wells Fargo Bank at 51st Avenue and Indian School Road.

Phoenix Police Sergeant Darren Burch said he had a note written on the back of a deposit slip and handed it to the teller but the teller couldn't read his handwriting. The frustrated robber fled on foot without any cash.

Our second case takes us to a very busy stretch of Bell Road in the Arrowhead area.

On Tuesday, August 24th, 2010, a suspect entered the Arizona Central Credit Union at 69th Avenue and Bell.

He told the teller he had a weapon and demanded money.

He took the cash and fled on foot but not before cameras got some great pictures of him.

"What was significant about this suspect is he wasn't wearing a diguise and you can see him very clearly," said Sgt. Burch

The third bank robbery happened at the Chase bank on McKellips east of Gilbert Road in Mesa.

The suspect walked in at about 4 p.m. on Tuesday, November 30th, 2010. He pointed a gun at the teller and demanded money which he got.

No getaway vehicle was seen but Sgt. Burch said the pictures are fantastic, "Anyone who knows this guy will definitely recognize him."
