    Over a 24-hour span, robbers struck at three different businesses in the suburban town of Southington and investigators are trying to determine if they are all connected.

    The first of the three robberies happened around noon on Monday at the Farmington Bank branch at 1 Center Street.

    The robber was described as thin and about 6-feet-tall.

    Then, at 5 p.m. on Monday, Southington police officers responded to TD Bank at 921 Meriden-Waterbury Road in the Plantsville section of town to investigate another reported bank robbery. 

    The robber, who did not show a weapon, handed the teller a note demanding cash, police said.

    He is believed to be around 25 years old, has short red hair and a red goatee with a chinstrap beard. He was wearing a Chicago White Sox baseball ha during the robbery, a black jacket with gray lined hood and a circular logo on left sleeve. He had on a black and gray striped shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers.

    Then, at 1:20 a.m. on Tuesday, an armed robbery was reported at the 7-Eleven at 777 Queen St. The robber held his hand under his shirt as if he was holding a weapon and handed the clerk a note. It indicated that he had a weapon and demanded money, police said.

    After the clerk gave him cash from the register and a pack of cigarettes, the robber fled.

    Patrol officers and a police K-9 were unable to track him.

    The man who committed the 7-Eleven robbery was thin, clean shaven, in his 20s, between 6-feet and 6-feet-2-inches tall, police said. He was wearing a plain gray hooded sweatshirt, plain gray sweatpants,

    Anyone with information on any of the robberies is asked to contact the Southington Police Department at 860-378-1698.
