BUNKER HILL, W.Va. - A man was charged Wednesday in connection with a bank robbery that happened a little more than a week ago in Bunker Hill, W.Va.

Nathanial Todd McCormick, 23, who has no fixed address, was charged with one felony count of bank robbery. He was arraigned on the charge and remained in Eastern Regional Jail Wednesday night on $100,000 bail.

McCormick was arrested without incident at a Bunker Hill house in which he was staying, said Berkeley County Sheriff Randy Smith.


Lt. K.C. Bohrer, with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department, said the robbery happened just after 1 p.m. on Tuesday, June 29, at the Centra Bank in Bunker Hill.

The robber watched the building and then removed the license plate from a white Geo Prizm. He pulled quickly into the parking lot and walked into the bank wearing a hunting-type of mask, Bohrer said.

The robber verbally demanded cash from a teller and placed the money in a bag he brought with him, Bohrer said.

Police declined to say how much money was taken. Smith said none of cash had been found but that police seized the Geo that they believe the robber used.

Nobody was injured during the robbery and police do not believe the robber had a weapon, Bohrer said.
