November 30, 1997|By Peter Hermann | Peter Hermann,SUN STAFF

Two armed men who apparently broke into a Baltimore County bank by cutting a hole through the roof tied up several employees yesterday morning and got away with an undetermined amount of money, police said.

The men, both armed with revolvers and wearing black knit ski masks, confronted employees of a NationsBank in the 10300 block of Reisterstown Road about 9: 10 a.m., minutes after the Owings Mills branch opened.

Investigators were not immediately sure if the robbers were in the bank when it opened.

Police said the holdup men took money from the cash drawers, tied up the employees and forced them to the back of the bank. The robbers stole an employee's car, which was recovered a short time later on Beaverhead Circle, about two blocks away in Garrison Plaza.

Police said none of the employees was injured and no customers were in the bank at the time of the holdup. A description of the suspects was not available.
