Man sought in bank robberies


Baltimore County police are searching for a man believed to have robbed four banks in the Liberty Road-Reisterstown Road corridor since Sept. 7.

The latest robbery occurred shortly before 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Maryland National Bank in the 6900 block of Liberty Road in Woodmoor.

A man walked into the bank claiming he had a bomb and walked away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The circumstances in the other three robberies are nearly identical. The man gives a teller a note saying he has a bomb, then is given an undisclosed amount of money and walks out.

After one robbery, the robber was seen leaving the scene in an older model bluish gray Chevrolet Cavalier with Maryland tags.

No one has been injured in any of the robberies and the robber never displayed a weapon. Based on the description of the suspect and other information, police said, they believe the four robberies are related.

The robber has been described as black, in his mid-20s, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 160 pounds and wearing denim clothes.

The other three robberies were at two banks.

First Virginia Bank in the 300 block of Reisterstown Road in Pikesville was hit twice -- Sept. 7 and again Saturday. Mercantile Safe Deposit and Trust Bank in the 8200 block of Liberty Road in Rockdale was robbed Monday.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 887-2198.
