Robbers Hit Two Banks in Howard County in One Day

Howard County police are searching for two robbers who held up different banks on Monday — a PNC Bank branch in the 15900 block of Old Frederick Road in Woodbine, the other at a Wells Fargo Bank in the 9200 block of Baltimore National Pike in Ellicott City.

Police said of the Woodbine robbery:

“A man had approached the teller and demanded money. The suspect did not display or imply a weapon, and the teller refused to comply. The suspect fled the bank on foot toward Lisbon Shopping Center. No money was obtained, and no one was injured in the incident.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 50 years old, 6 feet tall, medium build, curly gray hair, wearing a black ski mask, black and red striped shirt and blue jeans.”

Police said of the Ellicott City robbery:

“Two men entered the lobby, displayed guns and demanded customers get on the floor. One of the suspects jumped over the counter and removed money from the drawers while the other suspect stayed in the lobby. The suspects fled in a vehicle. No one was injured in the incident.

The suspects are described as males of unknown race wearing all black clothing and dark glasses. The first suspect was a slim build and athletic. The second suspect was approximately 5’10” to 6’ with a medium build.”

Anyone with information is urged to call 410-313-STOP.
