Baltimore County police yesterday charged three Baltimore men with the holdup Friday of a First National Bank branch in the 9600 block of Deereco Road in Timonium.

Police said the three also are suspects in seven other bank robberies dating to August.

During the robbery Friday, three men entered the bank about 1 p.m. Two went behind the counter and removed what police said was about $38,000, which they put into a canvas bag. The three men left the bank in a Honda. At least one of the men had a weapon.

Minutes after Baltimore County police broadcast a description of the car, city police found the car abandoned at the intersection of Northern Parkway and Cylburn Avenue. Two Baltimore County robbery detectives called to the intersection spotted a man fitting the description of one of the robbery suspects on Cylburn Avenue carrying a canvas bag under his arm. When the detectives approached, the man ran.

The detectives chased him about three blocks before they caught him and arrested him. They searched the bag and found a large sum of money. The man had red dye from a dye pack on his pants and shirt.

Two other men were arrested about 1:30 p.m. at an apartment building in the 2400 block of Garrison Blvd.

Charged with one count each of armed robbery of a bank were: Otis Nelson, 31, of the 3700 block of Manchester Ave.; Richard McQueen, 36, of the 4000 block of Fairfax Road; and Rommani Amenuel 32, of the 4100 block of Woodhaven Ave.
