The robber of the Benson post office on Connolly Road Saturday is believed to be the same man who robbed that post office in December 2012, police investigators say.. An attempted robbery that also occurred Saturday, at the Sovereign Bank branch just south of Bel Air, is not believed to be related to the post office crime, according to the Harford County Sheriff's Office. The bank robbery is, however, likely to be connected to two earlier robberies at the same Sovereign Bank branch.

In recent months, two groups of robbers have launched brazen plots to rob Maryland banks by kidnapping branch managers at their homes and forcing them at gunpoint to lead thieves to the loot. Both plots - including one last weekend in which a Clinton family was kidnapped - were ultimately foiled by authorities. The two cases in Southern Maryland are among a small run of incidents across the country this year in which robbers kidnap bank employees to gain entry to a bank. But even as official statistics kept by the FBI show that bank robberies are on the rise this year, the agency doesn't track kidnappings of bank officials in its quarterly statistics because such incidents remain rare, an FBI spokesman said.
