Cash reportedly flew out of the window of a car chased by police Wednesday on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, after a bank robbery in Millersville, police said.

Around 10:30 a.m. a man went into the Washington Savings Bank in the 600 block of Old Mill Road, passed a robbery note, received cash and then fled onto Veterans Highway in a red Pontiac Firebird, said Justin Mulcahy, a county police spokesman.

The car was spotted near I-97 and the Baltimore Beltway, Mulcahy said. Police chased the car on the Beltway and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway before the car pulled over on Route 32 and Broken Land Parkway in Columbia, where a man surrendered to officers, he said.

In an online report, someone reported seeing cash thrown out of a window of a car, but that could not be confirmed with county police Wednesday afternoon.

Anne Arundel County police from two districts pursued the car, assisted by Maryland State Police. The man in the car was taken into custody at 10:55 a.m., Mulcahy said.
