Westminster police are investigating the robbery yesterday of the East Main Street branch of Carroll County Bank & Trust Co., where a man fled with an undisclosed amount.

No one was injured and no weapon was displayed during the robbery, police said. The suspect was described as a white man with a goatee, tattoos on both arms, about age 30, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weighing about 200 pounds and wearing a white shirt, baggy shorts, white socks and work boots, police said.

A police dog unit searched the area soon after the robbery at 10 a.m. without success.

Capt. Randy Barnes, a police spokesman, said the FBI was assisting detectives. He said they had viewed videotapes taken by the bank's security cameras and were pursuing leads.

Within several hours of the robbery, the Carroll County Sheriff's Office had broadcast a warning to police authorities to look out for a suspect wanted for questioning in connection with the incident.
