Police Release Surveillance Video of Bank Robbery Suspect (VIDEO)

Montgomery County police officers are investigating two bank robberies that are believed to have been committed by the same suspect. This week, detectives have released a surveillance video of the suspect at one of the bank robberies and police are asking the public for help in identifying him.

On Saturday, February 13 at approximately 9:18 am, 2nd District officers responded to the armed robbery of the PNC bank at 10211 Old Georgetown Road. The suspect entered the bank, displayed a small handgun, and demanded money. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, police said he left the scene in an unknown direction.

A second bank robbery was dispatched at approximately 9:46 a.m. Officers from the 2nd District responded to the M & T bank located at 10420 Montgomery Avenue in Kensington. Investigators believe the suspect from the first robbery entered this bank, displayed a small handgun, and demanded cash from the teller. When a witness followed the suspect into a nearby parking lot, police said the suspect pointed his gun at the witness and the witness fled back to the bank.

He concealed his face and wore gloves that were dark on the palm and light on the back. Under his jacket, police said he was wearing a brown checkered dress-shirt, khaki pants, and brown dress shoes.
