Police searching for suspect in Ellicott City bank armed robbery

Howard County police are searching for a man who robbed an Ellicott City bank at gunpoint on Monday.

The suspect, described as roughly 6 feet tall and about 170 pounds, walked into a PNC Bank in the 4300 block of Montgomery Rd. just before 5 p.m. and pointed a handgun at the bank teller, demanding money.

No one was injured. Police said the teller gave the man cash, and the suspect, who wore a knit hat covering his face, along with a tan hooded jacket over his shoulders and dark jeans, left the bank.

A police news release said a preliminary investigation found the suspect drove a silver Jeep Cherokee during the heist.

Anyone with information may call 410-313-7867. Callers may remain anonymous, and police are offering up to $500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
