Missing Md. man arrested in North Carolina for attempted robbery

WASHINGTON — A Maryland man who was critically missing attempted to rob a bank in Annapolis on Friday and was arrested in North Carolina on Saturday, police say.

The man was identified as Gregory Klemkowski, 22, of Annapolis.

Klemkowski entered the Bank of America at 920 Bay Ridge Road on Nov. 24, just before 4:45 p.m. He then presented a note demanding money to one of the employees. The employees barricaded themselves and alerted police, according to a news release from the Annapolis Police Department.

Klemkowski fled the scene before police arrived, but detectives were able to identify him. A series of incidents prior to the attempted robbery led to his family’s concern for his welfare, police said.

Annapolis police issued a warrant for his arrest for the attempted robbery.

He was located on Saturday around 8:30 a.m. by the North Carolina Highway Patrol near Durham, North Carolina. Klemowski was taken into custody without incident.

He will be extradited to Maryland to face charges related to the attempted bank robbery.
