Baltimore County police are seeking help finding robbers who dressed as security guards and held up two banks in a week-and-a-half period.

The first robbery was about 1 p.m. Feb. 25 at NationsBank in the 6400 block of Security Blvd. in Woodlawn.

During that holdup, a man wearing a blue uniform coat with a patch and badge passed a note to the teller, demanding money. He was described as a black man, 20 to 30 years old, 6 feet tall, 175 pounds with a slim build and a mustache.

The second robbery was at First Virginia Bank in the 900 block of Frederick Road about 1 p.m. March 7. During that incident, two men, one wearing a security uniform, walked into the bank and showed the tellers a fake bomb and demanded money.

In that robbery, the bandits were described as black, 25 to 35 years old, 6 feet tall, 150 to 165 pounds, with thin builds. One was wearing a black uniform jacket with a fur collar, silver badge, white shirt and black tie. The other was wearing a black baseball cap and a gray fleece pullover shirt with white sleeves.

Anyone with information should call Baltimore County Police Department at 887-2198.
