Police were searching Friday for suspects in a break-in and robbery at a Riviera Beach bank last week.

County police said they were called to the First National Bank, in the 8400 block of Fort Smallwood Road, at about 8:30 a.m. Friday.

Andrew Manning, spokesman for the Baltimore FBI office, said thatall the cabinets inside the bank had been rifled and a night safe near the teller's windows had been robbed.

Manning said the burglaryoccurred between closing time on Thursday and reopening on Friday morning.

He said there were no signs of forced entry, and he did notknow if any alarms had been activated or shut off.

"We have no idea who we are looking for," Manning said.


A 21-year-old man with no fixed address has been charged with kidnapping his former girlfriend from Meade Senior High School and holding her in an abandoned building on Fort Meade.

Robin Dale Brigman was charged Wednesday with kidnapping and false imprisonment.

Police say that on Feb. 12, the man abducted the young woman -- whompolice refused to name -- from the school. She escaped unharmed after being held a short while.

The woman gave police the man's name, and an officer spotted him last Wednesday near his mother's home in Laurel. He was arrested after a brief scuffle, police said.


A chase involving a stolen car led to the arrest of two robbery suspects last week.

On Wednesday, police spotted a 1988 Pontiac Trans-Am that had been reported stolen earlierin the day from a Millersville man.

Police attempted to force thedriver to pull over on Route 100. When the driver refused to stop, police chased the car about two miles into Severna Park.

Police said the two occupants left the car in Severna Park and ran away. Countypolice, police dogs and a state police helicopter searched unsuccessfully for the men from 11:45 p.m. until 4 a.m Thursday.

Two hours later, a police officer on routine patrol in Severna Park arrested a suspect on Ritchie Highway.

Charles Patrick Cobb, 21, of no fixed address, was charged with two counts of assault and robbery, one count of unauthorized use of a car, and theft.
