November 29, 2011|AEGIS STAFF REPORT

The reward has been increased to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in connection with the robbery of a Northern Harford County bank earlier this month, the Harford County Sheriff's Office announced Thursday.

The robbery was Nov. 10 at the National Bank of Rising Sun's Dublin branch in the 3500 block of Conowingo Road in Street.

The sheriff's office said in a news release the reward through Metro Crime Stoppers was raised to $10,000 through a partnership between the Maryland Association of Banks and the FBI.

Two suspects, both males, are being sought in connection with the holdup.

The first is described as 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall with blue eyes and a thin build; the second is about 5 feet, 11 inches tall, also with a thin build. During the robbery, both wore dark colored, form-fitting shirts. They carried a black canvas tote with wooden handles, similar to a carpenter's bag.

The robbery occurred at approximately 8:20 a.m. when the robbers confronted the opening teller with a knife, demanded money and forced the teller to hand over an undisclosed amount of cash. The teller suffered a minor injury. The robbers ran off to the rear of the bank, which is at the intersection of Routes 1 and 136.

Security footage from the bank will not be released, according to Monica Worrell, public information officer for the sheriff's office.

Tips can be submitted confidentially online at or through a text to Metro Crime Stoppers at CRIMES (274637) or by calling 1-888-540-8477.
