Montgomery police looking for two men involved in Gaithersburg bank robbery on Friday -- Gazette.Net


Montgomery County Police are looking for two men believed to be behind a robbery at the TD Bank on Shady Grove Road in Gaithersburg, police say. One of the men is suspected to be behind another recent bank robbery in Bethesda.

One man, wearing a white, long-sleeved shirt and a white baseball cap, walked into the bank and gave a teller a note demanding cash. The teller gave him money — police have not said how much — and he walked out, according to a police news release issued on Friday .

As he was leaving the bank, a second man walked in and repeated his actions. That man was wearing a red shirt with a black tie, and dark-rimmed glasses and a fedora, according to police.

Police believe that the second man is the same man behind an Aug. 16 bank robbery at PNC bank in Bethesda.

In that robbery, which took place at about 12:38 p.m. and prompted PNC to issue a $5,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest of the culprit, the robber was dressed clothing identical to what the robber wore in Friday’s robbery.

Police are still trying to find the men behind the robbery, and are asking anyone with information to contact the Robbery Section at 240-773-5100.
