Suspect Susquehanna Bank 2.10.15On February 10, 2015, at approximately 9:11 a.m., officers from the Eastern District responded to the Susquehanna Bank located in the unit block of Magothy Beach Road in Pasadena for a report of a robbery of the business.

Upon arrival, officers learned that the suspect entered the bank carrying a shoebox, approached the teller counter and announced that he had a bomb. The suspect demanded that the teller hand over money, and he ultimately fled from the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, leaving the suspected device behind. He was last seen running towards the CVS store. A passerby reported seeing a possible suspect enter into a dark-colored pick-up truck that was parked nearby.

The citizen believed they saw red smoke coming from the suspect, most likely the result of a bank dye pack device. The truck was last seen entering onto Route 100. Officers responded to set a perimeter and canvass the area. K-9 arrived on scene and tracked to the area where the suspect was last seen, but he was not located. The surrounding area and businesses were canvassed for witnesses and video surveillance. The fire department responded to investigate the device, which was determined not be a bomb. Patrol supervision along with Criminal Investigation Robbery Detectives and the FBI also responded to the scene. ECU was requested and processed the scene. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact 410-222-4700.

Suspect: White male in his 20’s, wearing a black “beanie” hat, a dark jacket, gray sweatpants, Ponytail
