Washington County Sheriff's deputies were investigating a robbery at the American Trust bank on Virginia Avenue this morning, said 1st Sgt. Doug Mullendore
The 17345 Virginia Ave. bank, formerly known as Washington County National Bank, was robbed around 9:10 a.m. by a white man in his 20s who fled on foot down Coffman Avenue, Mullendore said.
A witness outside the bank saw a man with a description similar to the bank robber get into a dark blue Chevrolet Caprice, which was stopped less than an hour later in Frederick by Frederick Police and Maryland State Police, Mullendore said.
