Man displaying note robs bank branch in Linthicum


A man who threatened in a note to shoot a teller, but never showed a gun, robbed a Linthicum branch of NationsBank on Wednesday of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said yesterday.

The man walked into the bank in the 200 block of Benton Ave. about 10 a.m., used a desk, then approached a teller and held a note at eye level, police said. The note demanded money and contained a threat to shoot the teller and himself if the teller did not comply, police said.

The teller handed over money from a cash drawer, and the man walked out of the bank north behind Linthicum Elementary School, police said.

The man was described as white, in his mid 30s, 5 feet 8 inches tall, between 150 and 160 pounds with a light complexion and no facial hair. He had light brown hair that came below his ears and was wearing a red shirt, blue pants and white tennis shoes, police said.
