A man robbed M&T Bank on South Mill Street in Clear Spring on Friday afternoon after handing a teller a note, the Washington County Sheriff's Office said.

The robber got away with an undisclosed amount of money, said Sgt. Chris Weaver of the sheriff's office.

Police said the robber was described as a black man, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, about 45 or 50 years old, with a mustache.

He was wearing sunglasses, a black beanie-type hat and a plaid jacket over a gray hooded sweatshirt. The hood of the sweatshirt was sticking out over the plaid jacket.

The robbery happened at about 4:45 p.m., as the bank was open, Weaver said.

After being handed money, the robber left the bank and walked away, Weaver said.

Police are investigating the possibility that a second man and a car with out-of-state plates were connected to the robbery.

Weaver said witnesses reported seeing a midsized dark car, possibly a Chevrolet Impala from around 2003 to 2005, in the area before the robbery.

The car had a Michigan license plate with "SOY" as part of the letters and numbers.

No one saw the robber get into that car after the robbery, Weaver said.
