GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Police are looking for a possible serial bank robber after an incident Thursday morning in Green Township.

Police say that at about 10:30 a.m., a white male walked into the Guardian Savings Bank in the 5500 block of Harrison Avenue, gave the teller a note implying he had a weapon, then left with an undetermined amount of cash.

Police believe he could also be responsible for the robbery at the PNC Bank on Sept. 25 and a March 2012 robbery at another PNC on Glenway Avenue in Cincinnati. 

Police have set up a perimeter and are using K9 units and the sheriff's helicopter to find him.

The robber is described as male white, mid 30s to 40s, about 6'0" and 150 lbs. and wearing dark sunglasses, dark hair, gray short sleeved t-shirt, blue carpenter pants, black shoes with a white Nike emblem, slight facial hair.

There were no customers in the teller area at the time of the robbery.  No one was injured during the offense.
