UPDATE: Fallston Bank Robbed At Gunpoint

The BB&T Bank located on U.S. Route 1 was robbed late Monday morning.

UPDATE (5:14 p.m.)—A man wearing a hard hat and neon yellow safety vest robbed a Fallston bank at gunpoint late Monday morning and remained at large that evening, police say.

Around 11:02 a.m., police were called to the BB&T Bank, located at 1911 Bel Air Road in Fallston, after employees reported the bank had been robbed, a Maryland State Police trooper with the Bel Air Barrack said.

Shortly before 11 a.m. a man wearing a hard hat and a yellow and orange safety vest walked into the bank carrying a duffel bag, according to a release from state police.

The man showed a black “bull pub” style shotgun, demanded money and ordered the tellers and customers to floor, the release states. The armed man then stole an undisclosed amount of money from the teller’s drawers and coin vault, the release continues.

The robbery is described as an older, stocky, white man wearing faded jeans and a gray sweatshirt under the yellow and orange vest, state police said.

Troopers and Harford County sheriff's deputies searched the area with helicopter and police dogs, but the robber had not been aprehended as of 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Thought for the day hopefully he will be caught before anything else happens. People should be nicer to others especially in these hard times look out for your fellow man and help them instead of insulting and condemning them. Not everyone has had a college education but to insult someone for their vocabulary is degrading. I bet your parents wouldn't think to highly of it either it just shows your ignorance and selfishness towards others.

I'm sitting here reading these posts and obviously, people don't actually comprehend what they're reading by the responses to Mr. Sample's posts. The man said that he was on the street at 12 with next to no education and has spent time in the library teaching himself how to form sentences and be able to type or talk correctly. Unbelieveable how other people jump in and condemn this man for what they say is being "minimally illiterate".....what is wrong with people? The man said he didn't have an education and was teaching himself at the library, of which, he has just as much right to state an opinion as anyone else on here. Jesus God, people.....how can you be so cruel? Are you that perfect that you can't see that the man is just voicing his opinion the best way he can.......and then I read that every freakin' post in here, no matter where you read, ends up being political. Obama didn't cause the robbery.....the idiot who robbed the bank apparently thought he was above the law and took from others what didn't belong to him, which, for some people, seems to be the best way to do things instead of getting off your lazy ass and finding a job somewhere!!! I actually don't know why I waste my valuable time reading this crap and then get myself so upset over how people treat other people.....people that you don't even know. Its just so ridiculous

Alana, I didn't condemn Mr. Sample for being minimally literate, I moderately chastised him for pretending to be minimally literate. Reread Mr. Sample's posts again. It is remarkable that he went from using "be" instead of is/are in the first post and then miraculously learned to use is/are in the span of about two hours. He is a troll who is doing a poor job of trying to imitate someone minimally literate. Also, by defending Mr. Sample you are actually defending the first person to bring Obama into this thread. You might try taking these comments less seriously. Many of these folks aren't here for serious discourse and polite exchange of ideas.

This is typical liberal behavior . The original poster stated his feeling and good for him for doing so. Lieberals will try to block any individual idea at all cost. I woud say you should feel ashamed for commenting on his grammer but it is LIBERAL policies that fail students in the classrooms everyday. For example I live in DC and charter schools are kicking ass. It amazes me he won a second term. We gave him a do over. WTF. Must be nice to be black and not be held accountable for his actions . Cant say that for the 1.6 million blacks in jail.

Alana, one of the reasons Obama was brought into a post about a bank robbery is because the robber probably is an Obama lover BECAUSE as you mentioned...is a lazy ass and robs banks instead of looking for a real job. Obama helps people who want free handouts. God help us all for the next 4 years!
