The robber entered the bank branch, in the 2400 block of Whiteford Road, at about 2:13 p.m. and showed the teller a note indicating a robbery, Lt. Sean Jackson, Bel Air Barrack commander, said Wednesday.
No weapon was displayed, Jackson said.
The robber was given money and fled. No one was injured in the incident, Jackson said.
The suspect is described as white, in his mid- to late-twenties, 5 feet 3 inches tall, and wearing a black T-shirt, blue jeans and a baseball cap. No video footage or photos of the robbery were available as of Wednesday, Jackson said.
In addition to State Police troopers from both the Bel Air and JFK Highway barracks, Harford County Sheriff's Office deputies also responded, Jackson said. The did not find the suspect in the area, however.
State Police alone had about seven or eight cruisers on site, Jackson said, which he called "typical."
"We are going to try to set up a perimeter and see if the subject is still in the area," he explained.
