August 24, 2007

Police are looking for a man who robbed Fidelity Bank at 17708 Virginia Avenue today about 12:53 p.m.

Washington County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Roy Harsh said no weapon was involved, and no one was injured.

The man handed a note to a bank teller that said no one would get hurt if the employees cooperated, Harsh said.

The man left the bank on foot with an unknown amount of money, and last was seen at Food Lion near the intersection of Virginia Avenue and Halfway Boulevard.

Police are looking for a black male in his late 20s or early 30s, Harsh said. The robber is about 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighs about 235 pounds.


Harsh said the robber was wearing a black short-sleeve T-shirt over a white long-sleeve T-shirt.

The man was wearing glasses and had rather large front teeth, Harsh said.

The Maryland Association of Banks is offering a $3,000 reward for information.

Anyone with information on the robbery may call Harsh at 240-313-2183.
