August 26, 2010

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. -- Police were looking for a man who robbed the Shepherdstown office of BB&T bank Thursday afternoon.

The robber demanded money without showing a weapon and took an undisclosed amount of cash from two tellers, West Virginia State Police Sgt. K.E. Plumer said.

The robber concealed his face with a black handkerchief before walking into the bank, Plumer said.

No one was injured in the robbery, which was reported at 2:24 p.m, according to a news announcement on Friday.

The suspect was described as a black man, about 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds. He was wearing dark clothing, including a black shirt over a gray shirt, a baseball cap and had long hair, but Plumer said he might have been wearing a wig.

Police said he fled on foot from the bank which is at 8327 Martinsburg Pike.

A passenger riding in a white, "police model" Ford Crown Victoria spotted in the area of the bank matched the suspect description, Plumer said. The car was driven by another man, Plumer said.
