It appears the same guy tried to rob two banks in the Pee Dee Wednesday afternoon. 

In Darlington, authorities say a white male entered the Bank of America on South Main Street around 2:45 p.m. and presented a bank teller with a note demanding money.

The subject fled before he was able to receive any money but a surveillance photo caught him on camera. The Darlington City Police asks anyone with information to contact the Darlington City Police Department at 843-398-4026.

Soon after that, the TD Bank on Dozier Street, was targeted and robbed, police said. The Florence Police released surveillance photos of that suspect and it appears to be the same person.

He's dressed in all black, wearing flip flips, a gold chain, sunglasses and has a tattoo on the left side of his neck.

Sgt. Kim Nelson, Public Information Officer for Darlington Police said the suspect has been identified as Michael E. Monaghan of Naples Florida. Warrants have been issued for his arrest. He is 28 years old approximately six feet tall and weighs about 150 pounds.   You are advised not to approach him if you see him but call authorities immediately.

No injuries were reported from this incident. You can contact Florence Police Department (843) 665-3191, the FBI or Crime Stoppers with any information.
