Warrant Issued For Man Suspected In 2 Bank Robberies

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The man who allegedly robbed a Coraopolis bank on July 7, is now connected to another bank robbery on the South Side.

Jeffrey Schrott, 33, is now wanted for two robberies, one taking place July 7 and the other July 13. After allegedly robbing the First Niagara Bank in Coraopolis last week, Schrott robbed the Citizens Bank in the Wharton Square Giant Eagle on the South Side.

At about 2:20 p.m. Sunday, he approached a grocery store bank teller and handed over a handwritten note that read, "I have a 9mm. 100's 50's No dye packs and nobody gets hurt."

He got away with an unspecified amount of money. He was not wearing a mask at the time and was caught on a surveillance camera.

Schrott is 5-fee-11-inches tall and weighs approximately 190 pounds. His last known residence is in the 1100-block of Third Avenue in Coraopolis, and he lived on Neville Island prior to that.

During the First Niagara Bank robbery last week, he also allegedly handed the teller a note demanding money.

Police say he has a conviction for a similar bank robbery that occurred in 2011.

Anyone who sees Schrott or has information regarding his whereabouts should contact the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Robbery Squad at (412)-323-7800 or (412)-323-7151.
