Police searching for 2 robbers of Severna Park bank

County police are searching for two men who robbed the First National Bank of Maryland in Severna Park yesterday.

Police said two men wearing dark glasses entered the bank at 534 Ritchie Highway about 1:45 p.m. The men approached two teller windows and passed notes to the teller without displaying any weapons or speaking. The notes said the tellers were to hand over money or they would be killed.

An undetermined amount of money was handed to the men, who then left the bank. Moments later, two men were seen speeding off the side parking lot of the bank in an older model, tan-colored Ford Escort, heading south on Ritchie Highway.

The two men were described as black, both about 6 feet tall. One was described as having a medium build, and was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes. The second man was described as having a heavy build and was wearing a dark blue work uniform and an orange safety vest. He was carrying work boots.

Drama club raises money for school

The drama club at Chesapeake Academy has raised more than $2,000 for the school's building fund with its production of "Charlotte's Web."

Under the direction of Jane Merrill, about 40 children worked on the play after school, on weekends and during recess.

The students requested that the money from the April 1-3 performances be used to build a stage in the school's new multipurpose room, said a school spokeswoman.

The academy will be adding six classrooms and a multipurpose room with a stage to its current facility at 1185 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd. in Arnold. Groundbreaking is scheduled for April 30, with completion expected in late August.
