Reward offered in bank robberies

Harford County Crime Solvers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for the arrest and indictment of the person responsible for robbing the Maryland National Bank in the Constant Friendship Shopping Center on April 14 and May 16.

Maryland State Police are searching for a man described as black, 25 to 35 years old, about 6 feet tall, with a thin to medium build and possibly a light mustache.

A man quietly approached a teller April 14, displayed a handgun and demanded money. He then fled, running north and parallel to Route 24 behind the shopping center, which faces Emmorton Road.

The Harford County sheriff's office also is investigating two earlier robberies at the Harford National Bank, also on Emmorton Road.

The description of the suspect in those robberies is similar to that of the suspect in the Maryland National robberies.

On May 16, the suspect was described as wearing a dark jacket, dark sun glasses, a white baseball cap with "Roadrunner" printed on it and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information about this incident should call the Crime Solvers hot line at (410) 877-STOP, the Bel Air state police barracks at (410) 879-4101, the sheriff's office at (410) 838-6600 or the FBI at (410) 838-4349. Callers need not give their name or appear in court.
