Man robs Maryland National Bank; some money recovered

Police are searching for a man who robbed a Maryland National Bank branch in the Village of Wilde Lake yesterday.

The man fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, part of which was later recovered.

According to police, the robber entered the bank at 10451 Twin Rivers Road at 11:45 a.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money. The robber apparently was unarmed and did not indicate he was carrying a weapon, said Andrew Manning, spokesman for the Maryland-Delaware division of the FBI.

After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, he fled the bank on foot. Authorities recovered a portion of the stolen money and a red dye-pack, used to trace stolen cash, in a nearby snow bank.

Town house project approved by board

The county Planning Board unanimously approved land-use plans yesterday that could allow 100 town houses in the Clary's Forest loop in Hickory Ridge village.

Howard Research & Development, the development arm of the Rouse Co., obtained approval of a final development plan for a 13.5-acre site between Green Meadow Drive and Little Patuxent Parkway.

The land had been designated for commercial use, but was changed by the County Council members sitting as the Zoning Board, to 9.5 acres of town houses and 4 acres of open space.

Work is expected to begin by the end of the year on the project.
