A bank robbery suspect was in jail Thursday evening after his bail was ordered to remain at $200,000 during a bond review, Washington County District Court records indicate.

Richard Leo Lambert Jr., 33, of 55 S. Potomac St., is charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, theft of more than $500 and conspiracy to commit theft of more than $500. According to a charging document, Lambert and Corey Antonio Usher allegedly handed notes to separate bank tellers demanding money at about 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Hagerstown Trust branch on West Franklin Street.

The notes demanding money were written on notebook paper with what appeared to pink marker, the charging document states. The notes instructed the tellers not to give the suspects any dye packs or tracking devices, and the charging document states, they each warned, "If I don't make it out, neither do you."

According to the charging document, a police officer who had dealt with Usher and Lambert during an incident at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday in the first block of West Franklin Street recognized the men in a bank surveillance video.
