MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have released a description of the hat worn by a man believed to have robbed two North Dakota banks within about five hours on Friday.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1NEAyqZ ) that the suspect was wearing an orange-and-brown baseball cap with flames, a picture of an oil well and the word “roustabout.”

Stanley Police Chief Kris Halvorson says he hopes releasing the description of the hat might generate some tips from the public.

Police have not said how much money was taken from the BNC National Bank in Stanley on Friday morning and Dacotah Bank in Minot on Friday afternoon. The cities are about 55 miles apart on U.S. Highway 2.

No injuries were reported in either robbery.
