A man who said in a note he was armed but never showed a weapon robbed a Glen Burnie bank Thursday and apparently changed clothes behind the Glen Burnie mall before escaping, county police said.

The man entered First Fidelity Bank in the first block of Ordnance Road shortly before 11 a.m. and handed a teller a note that read, "I have a gun, give me your money," police said.

The teller, Kass Wilkins, 52, complied, but the man demanded more money. After she gave the robber a $20 bill and told him that was all she had, he fled the bank toward the rear of the building, police said.

Police searched the area and found a white plastic bag behind the mall with a hat and jacket fitting the description of what the bandit wore, police said.
