3 Men with guns rob Old Line Bank in Odenton

Bank robberies more than triple this year

ODENTON, Md. - Three men with guns robbed an Odenton bank Monday, according to a release from Anne Arundel County police.

Officers responded to the Old Line Bank in the 1100 block of Annapolis Road at 10:18 a.m. on Dec. 30 for an armed robbery.

Surveillance footage shows that the three men covered their faces with clothing.

Witnesses told police that the three men pulled handguns out and demanded money. Several bank employees and customers were inside the bank at the time of the robbery. No one was injured.

"We don't need anyone dying over money.  At the end of the day, we don't need anyone taking a bullet over money.  If that's what they're threatening to do, we don't want to test them to see if they're true to their word," said Lt. T.J. Smith, Anne Arundel County police spokesman.    

It's unclear from the release, if the robbers stole money from the bank, the customers, or both.

The robbers were last seen leaving in a green Mercury minivan with a silver stripe at the bottom.

Police recovered the van a short distance away in the 600 block of Carlton Otto Lane. According to the release, the suspects may have used a second getaway car in their escape.

This is the 16th bank robbery in Anne Arundel County compared to five last year.  Police don't have a specific reason for the spike, but they have done security training.
