Police seek M&T Bank robber

June 26, 2009

Authorities are looking for a man who robbed M&T Bank at 17724 Garland Groh Blvd. on Friday morning, according to a Hagerstown Police Department press release.

No one was injured and no weapons were displayed in the 11:03 a.m. robbery, police said.

The man entered the bank and handed a teller a note demanding cash. After the man received the money, he fled on foot across the parking lot toward Wal-Mart, police said.

The robber was described as white and in his late 20s or early 30s, police said. He is about 5 feet 10 inches tall and was wearing a blue baseball hat and a dark-colored button-down shirt. He also has a tattoo on his neck, police said.

Police believe the man was involved in other bank robberies that occurred in the county a few weeks ago, according to the release.


Friday's bank robbery marked the second in the city in as many days.

On Thursday, a man robbed the Sovereign Bank at 140 Paul Smith Blvd. off Edgewood Drive near Dual Highway.

Police described the robber in that case as black and wearing a black hat backwards, a large gray shirt and a blue bandanna.

The robber last was seen by bank employees as a passenger in a silver, late-model SUV.

Anyone with information on the robberies may call the Hagerstown Police Department at 301-790-3700.
