October 12, 1997|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

A man with a note demanding money robbed a Glen Burnie bank branch Thursday of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said.

It was the second time in as many days that a robber with a note held up a north county bank. On Thursday, a man walked into the American National Bank branch in Harundale Mall just after 1 p.m. and handed a note demanding money to teller Beverly Kastner, 47. Kastner handed the man cash and he ran away on Aquahart Road. According to FBI statistics, the robbery was the 24th in the county this year, one more than through October last year.

On Wednesday, a man with a note that implied he had a weapon robbed the Washington Savings Bank branch in a shopping center in the 600 block of Old Mill Road.

Police described the robber in that holdup as a white male in his mid-20s, about 6 feet tall, with a medium build and weighing 170 pounds.

Police describe the man in Friday's holdup as black, between 30 and 35 years old, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a medium build wearing a gray T-shirt with red lettering, a ball cap and jeans.
