Woman sought in Hagerstown bank robbery



A robber, believed to be a woman, got away with an undetermined amount of money from the First United Bank and Trust at 751 Knightbridge Drive in Hagerstown's South End on Saturday morning.

Hagerstown City Police Detective Patricia Moulton said the two "My Bank" employees were told it was a robbery when the suspect entered the bank at 9:15 a.m.

The suspect did not display a weapon, but kept her left fist closed and partially concealed throughout the robbery, Moulton said.

A bag was handed to the branch manager and she was ordered to fill it with money. The suspect also told the manager not to set off the alarm or she would be harmed, Moulton said.

The robber told the employees to stay on the floor for two minutes while she fled out the door and got into a waiting car, police said.

The newer model light-colored Ford Contour had Pennsylvania wildlife plates. The last four digits were 0085, Moulton said.

A white man, heavy set with short brown hair and eyeglasses, was driving the car the suspect got in as they went around the rear of the shopping center at Frederick Street and Wilson Boulevard.

The robber was described as 5 feet, 7 inches and 180 pounds. She had a dark scarf over her face and a hood over her head. Her coat was beige and had a fur-lined hood. She was wearing dark gloves.

Anyone with additional information about the robbery or the robber is urged to call Hagerstown police at 301-790-3700 or Crime Solvers of Washington County at 301-733-4141.
