Bank robberies soar BALTIMORE CITY


Thirty Baltimore banks have been robbed in 1993, five times more than at this time in 1992, police said.

The latest robbery occurred at 10:30 a.m. yesterday at the Mercantile Bank & Trust in the 200 block of E. Redwood Street, police said.

The robber, a man about 20 to 25 years old, approached a teller, opened his long brown coat revealing a handgun in his waistband and said, "Give me all your money."

The teller handed the man an undisclosed amount of money, which he stuffed into a small black bag he had with him and fled, police said.
