Reward offered in New Windsor bank robbery

The Maryland Association for Bank Security will offer a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the New Windsor State Bank robbery suspect, according to a news release from the Carroll County Sheriff's Office.

Police are seeking a white female who was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt when she entered the bank and handed a note to the teller demanding money at about 1:04 p.m. Wednesday.

After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect left the bank on foot, traveling south on Main Street, police said.

Police described the woman as about 35, 5 feet 8 to 5-10, weighing 230 to 250 pounds.
