Bank of America robbed in Glen Burnie

WASHINGTON — Local police officers are investigating a bank robbery that occurred in Glen Burnie on Saturday morning.

Shortly before 10:30 a.m., officers from the town’s Northern District responded to a bank robbery at the Bank of America along Mountain Road.

Once they arrived, officers met with several bank employees, who said a man entered the building and stood in line for a teller to assist him.

Then, the man approached the bank teller and handed her a folder with a note saying he had a gun and wanted cash. However, the man did not pull out a handgun.

The bank teller gave cash to the man, who then left the Bank of America and fled on foot toward Mountain Road.

Several patrol units from Northern and Eastern District, along with K-9 and the Aviation Unit, went to the area to find the man, but couldn’t find him.

Detectives also interviewed bank employees and other customers. Police obtained a photograph of the suspect from surveillance footage. The FBI was notified as well.

There were no injuries sustained during the bank robbery. The man is described as white, in his 50s and 60s, tall and thin with a long gray and brown beard and mustache.

He was wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt, a light and dark gray baseball style hat with a Chevrolet symbol on the front, and dark sunglasses.
