Arrests in Baltimore for illegal guns often lead to dropped charges or little jail time

Bank robber hits three Baltimore banks in five days

The FBI Violent Crimes Task Force is looking for a man who they believe has robbed three area Wells Fargo banks in the span of five days.

The FBI said in a news release that the most recent robbery occurred Friday afternoon at the Wells Fargo in the 1700 block of E. Northern Parkway. 

Before that, authorities believe he held up a Wells Fargo in the 800 block of N. Rolling Road in Catonsville on Monday, and a branch in the 6300 block of York Road on Tuesday. 

Witnesses described the robber as a black man, about 20 to 30 years old, standing about 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7, with a small build and medium complexion. Officials said he presented notes to the tellers, stated that he had a weapon, and demands money.

In one of the cases, he was seen climbing into a blue minivan parked across from the bank in the parking lot of another store.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Baltimore FBI at 410-265-8080.
