Police: Man Threatened Laurel Area Bank With Chemicals

The bank robbery is still under investigation by police. No one has been charged.

Anne Arundel police are looking for information on a man they said threatened the use of a “chemical weapon” to rob a PNC Bank in Maryland City.

The incident occurred at about 5:38 p.m. Thursday at the PNC Bank at the 3300 block of Laurel Fort Meade Road in Laurel, according to the Anne Arundel County police Facebook page.

Police said the man passed a note that “threatened the use of a chemical weapon” and demanded money. He ran away with an unspecified amount of money.

The man was carrying a bag he said contained the weapon, which he left behind, reported Explore Howard.

Officials evacuated the bank after the incident to investigate what was in the bag; it only contained construction materials, according to Explore Howard.

Police said the suspect was described as a white male, approximately 40 years old, 5’5”, 150 pounds, wearing a dark-colored shirt, shorts, dark sunglasses and a red baseball cap.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Clifford Van Hoesen of the Robbery Unit at 410-222-3469 (3566) or contact Metro Crime Stoppers.
