A robber made off with an undisclosed amount of money following a bank robbery at the M&T Bank on Seventh Street in Frederick Thursday.

Frederick Police Department officers responded to the bank at 929 W. Seventh St. for a report of a robbery around 2:20 p.m. An investigation found the suspect entered the facility, displayed a handgun and demanded money, according to a news release.

The suspect, described as a white male wearing a camouflage face mask and ball cap, then left the bank with an undisclosed amount of currency and entered a vehicle. The vehicle is believed to have headed south on Md. 15 toward Interstate 270 and Interstate 70.

Video surveillance and photographs further show the suspect wearing a dark-colored sweatshirt, light-colored jeans and carrying a tan backpack, according to police.

FPD is asking anyone with information regarding the incident to contact Detective Radtke at 240-549-4579 or Callers may also remain anonymous and contact the FPD’s Crime Tip Line at 301-600-TIPS (8477).

And no mention of the MVB over in Jefferson getting held up Friday?


It’s amazing that a camera at the bay bridge can get a picture of my tag going 50+ mph but this is the best a banks camera can capture. Maybe those camera system makers should sell their products to banks.
