Glynn County police released photos of a man they want to speak with in connection with a robbery of the First Franklin Financial on Altama Connector. Later in the day the Brunswick Police Department provided a photo and details of an armed robbery at the Five Star Credit Union on Altama Avenue, just over 2 miles away.

News4Jax was told both robberies happened within an hour of each other Thursday morning.

In the first, a man Brunswick police described as about 5 feet 8 inches tall weighing 150 pounds walked up to a cashier at the credit union on Altama Avenue about 11:15 a.m., showed a gun and demanded money. Police said he walked out on Tara Lane toward the Magnolia Park subdivision.

He was wearing a blue jacket over a light-colored hoodie and light-colored pants.

No details were provided of the First Franklin robbery.

Anyone who can help Brunswick police identify the man on the left is asked to call Detective Carla Futch at 912-279-2641 or Silent Witness 912-267-5516.

Glynn County investigators were hoping to provide details about the incident involving the person on the photo on the right later Thursday. Anyone who could help identify that man is asked to call Brunswick police at 912-554-7802 or the Silent Witness line at 912-264-1333.
