Armed masked man robs two Martin County banks, sheriff's office says

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.
