SMITHSBURG - About 30 minutes after officials at Farmers and Merchants Bank at 22940 Jefferson Blvd. reported a robbery there Thursday, a Waynesboro, Pa., man called 911 and told police he did it, according to the Bureau of Drug and Criminal Enforcement of Maryland State Police.
Richard Lenard Morrow, 39, of 2 E. Main St., was charged with robbery and theft of more than $300, police said.
He was being held Thursday night in Washington County Detention Center on $200,000 bond.
A man entered the bank at about 10:20 a.m. and demanded money from a teller, police said.
No weapon was displayed, said Ron Frey, senior vice president of the bank's security office.
There were no injuries.
The bank teller gave the man money that contained dye packs and the man left the bank in a silver Oldsmobile bearing Maryland tags, police said.
Bank officials were able to provide police with a detailed description of the man, but it turned out it wasn't needed.
