Police probe bank break-in

County police are investigating a break-in at a bank in Oakland Mills during the weekend, in which someone cut a hole in a bathroom floor above the bank to gain entry.

Police said the intruder tried unsuccessfully to get into the night deposit at the First National Bank of Maryland in the 5800 block of Robert Oliver Place. The intruder took a $1,000 IBM laser printer, police said.

Police said the break-in probably occurred Sunday night or Monday morning. They have no suspects.

A bank manager discovered the break-in about 8:30 a.m. Monday and notified authorities, police said.

Police arrived and learned that someone had cut a hole in the floor in the second-floor men's bathroom above the bank. After cutting the hole, the intruder got into the crawl space between floors, removed ceiling tiles and entered the bank.


Long Reach: 9000 block of Lambskin Lane: Someone pulled a screen from a front window between Thursday and Sunday. Entry wasn't gained.
