SHADY GROVE, Pa. - Pennsylvania State Police, using a helicopter and a police dog, were searching for one man and a possible accomplice following a robbery early Wednesday afternoon of a branch bank in Shady Grove.
There were no injuries in the armed robbery, according to State Police Cpl. R. Leidigh.
It was the second time the bank was robbed in the last 18 months.
Police said a male entered a branch of the First National Bank of Greencastle at 1574 Buchanan Trail East around 1:30 p.m., displayed a handgun, demanded and got an undisclosed amount of cash. He then fled east on foot through the snow across a field to what police think may have been a white Chevrolet Chevette compact car. An accomplice may have been waiting in the vehicle, police said, after talking with a witness who observed the scene.
