— While Janesville police investigate Monday's robbery of the Mid America bank on Milton Avenue, they're also looking for any reasons this specific bank has been hit three times, by robbers, since 2003.

Janesville police Sgt. Brian Donohoue says they've gone over all of the safety features with employees, and they're following them. He says they've also looked at physical aspects of the building and it's location to see if there's anything that makes it an "easy mark." He says there's nothing obvious that makes it vulnerable.


Police continue to look for a white male suspect, in his mid 20's to early 30's, about 5'11" and 190 lbs, thin build, brown hair and eyes and a dark goatee.
