JAMESTOWN – Jamestown-area authorities are working with the FBI and other agencies to determine if the same gunman believed to have robbed a bank in Jamestown and another in Falconer hours apart Monday is responsible for other robberies throughout the state.

Authorities, however, have yet to establish a positive link between the holdups in Falconer and Jamestown. The robber was described as a white man with light-brown hair and a reddish-blond goatee, about 5-foot-10 and 160 ounds.

During the Jamestown holdup, police said, he wore wire-rim glasses, a Pittsburgh Pirates cap, black leather coat, black pants and a green button-up shirt.
