The man believed to be responsible for two robberies of the same bank in May and June is still at large.

Rashime Omar Gardner of Statesville is being sought on two counts of common law robbery for robberies at Community One Bank on East Broad Street.

Statesville Police Department Chief Tom Anderson said officers are following leads but think Gardner may have left the state.

He said authorities are on the lookout locally but are also working with officials in other jurisdictions in an attempt to locate Gardner.

A second man, Craig Bernard Moore, 34, of Triplett Road, Cleveland, was arrested for being an accessory to the robbery. Anderson said Moore drove the getaway car for Gardner in one of the robberies. He was arrested June 21.
