Robbery photo

Frederick police released this image of the person suspected of robbing a bank on Monday.

Frederick police are searching for a man who they say robbed a local bank Monday, although they believe the man was not armed.

Officers responded to the PNC Bank branch in the 1300 block of West 7th Street around noon for a report of a robbery, according to a release from the Frederick Police Department.

The man entered the bank, gave a note to an employee and left with an undisclosed amount of money, said Capt. Joe Hayer.

He fled on foot and was last seen in the area of the bank, Hayer said.

The robber was last seen wearing a gray collared shirt, a black baseball cap and jeans. He was also wearing a dark cloth face mask with an emblem on it.

Frederick County Sheriff's Office and Maryland State Police units helped with the search, including MSP's Trooper 3 helicopter.

Anyone with information should contact the police department at 301-600-2102.

Investigators are also looking to talk to any businesses or others in the area who may have surveillance or other video footage, Hayer said.

Detective Gregory Loftis is investigating the case and can be reached at 240-674-8941. Anyone who wants to provide information anonymously can use the department's tip lines by phone at 301-600-8477 or text at 240-674-8477, or email at

Why is this Bank routinely robbed? With current conditions, All banks need an armed guard on site and trained to use a taser or ways to safely apprehend these crooks. What has happened to protecting the public esp. in areas that are ripe for desperate criminals (places that stock large amount of money).


The doors at the banks throughout the countey need to be locked up tite until we get a Sherf that van manage these serious crimes


Except that this was in city jurisdiction.


Pay close attention to wording. Thanks 👍🏻


So, it was deliberately off-topic then?


And just what would be your proposal to manage these serious crimes? What exactly should law enforcement be doing differently?



Did her law enforcement solutions get deleted? Geeze. I was looking for some enlightenment from a real law enforcement expert.[crying][ninja]


First - return to community policing


Please explain what you think that means Pb? Is the SRO program not a part of community policing?

Trollin', trollin', trollin'

The "LEAD" one keeps on trollin'



[thumbup][thumbup][thumbup][lol] gabe!


Plumbum, you should worry more about your spelling and just let our sheriff handle the law. "countey?" "Sherf?" "that 'van' manage?" I guess whining about Chuck Jenkins and writing like a third grader is just your way of killing two birds with one stone, huh? [lol][lol][lol]


Frederick Shopping Center branch, right?


I thought you had to have an appt. to get in banks these days? I could never just walk in...


It was probably the bank's fault. [lol][ninja]

gramps was obviously Trumps fault. If not for his mishandling of the pandemic this man most certainly would not have needed to rob a bank. He would still have his job and all the money he needs to survive.


What would you have proposed gramps? Please give details.


I believe gramps was being facetious, gabe.


Don't worry, the Harris-Biden campaign will provide bail money once he gets arrested.



Or maybe the bank's vault.
