An armed masked man robbed two banks in Martin County Monday, according to the sheriff's office.

The sheriff's office said he first targeted a Bank United in Hobe Sound and within an hour struck a TD Bank in Port Salerno.

They describe the suspect as a white male wearing dark sweatpants and white sneakers.

He has dark hair and is between 25 and 30-years-old.

There was a controlled lockdown at Martin Hospital South and at its Hobe Sound location as a precaution. It has since been lifted and all facilities are operating as normal.

If you have any information you are asked to contact the Martin County Sheriff's Office.
