Deputies seek man who robbed bank at mall

May 26, 2009

A man walked into the M&T Bank branch inside the Valley Mall on Tuesday morning, passed a note and left with an undisclosed amount of money, Washington County Sheriff's Department deputies said. 

The robber went into the bank just before 10:20 a.m. No weapon was displayed and no one was injured, deputies said. 

The robber was described as a white male, believed to be in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a thin build. He was unshaven, wearing a baseball style hat, blue jeans and a Navy blue hooded sweatshirt with "IRISH" across the front, deputies said.

Bank personnel couldn't tell if the man arrived or left in a vehicle but told deputies he went toward the parking lot. 


Deputies were being assisted in the search for the robber by Hagerstown City Police and Maryland State Police. 

Deputies ask that anyone with information call 240-313-2183 or 301-791-3020. A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect. Callers may remain anonymous.
