According to police, he walked into both banks, handed the teller a note saying he was armed, demanded money be placed in a bag with no dye packs and once that was done, he left the banks without speaking.
He is described as 5-foot-9-inches, 240 pounds with brown eyes. Police are considering him potentially armed and dangerous.
Anyone who sees Stevens is asked to call 911.
