FBI investigators believe one man has robbed seven Maryland banks in just over two weeks, according to a release from the bureau’s Baltimore Division.
The FBI Violent Crimes Task Force said the suspect changed his tactics since Friday April 4, when a bank manager recognized the serial bank robber from surveillance photos.
The most recent robbery was reported Monday April 7 at the Wells Fargo bank in the 8500 block of Liberty Road in Randallstown. The suspect wore a mask, although investigators are confident that the same man robbed at least six other banks in the Greater Baltimore region.
The same man robbed two banks within hours on Friday April 4: First a Wells Fargo bank in the 8200 block of Gateway Overlook Drive in Elkridge and then a Bay Bank in the 2600 block of Annapolis Road in Hanover.
“Witnesses have all described the robber as a black man, about 20 to 30-years-old, 5’6” to 5’7”, with a small build and medium complexion,” the release from the FBI states. “He presents notes to the tellers and demands money, stating he has a weapon. Witnesses say the robber wore a mask in the most recent incident.”
Authorities believe the same man robbed all of the following banks:
- Wells Fargo – 8522 Liberty Road, Randallstown, MD on April 7
- Bay Bank – 2637 Annapolis Road, Hanover, MD on April 4
- Wells Fargo – 8210 Gateway Overlook Drive, Elkridge, MD on April 4
- Wells Fargo – 582 Fredrick Road, Catonsville, MD on April 3
- Wells Fargo – 1726 East Northern Parkway, Baltimore, MD on March 28
- Wells Fargo – 860 North Rolling Road in Catonsville, MD on March 24
- Wells Fargo – 6309 York Road, in Baltimore, MD on March 25
