|FBI Baltimore April 07, 2014|
The FBI Violent Crimes Task Force has a warning for area banks about a serial robber who has changed tactics after a bank manager questioned him Friday after recognizing him from surveillance photos. The robber left that bank but then robbed another bank a few miles away a short time later. Investigators say a man who robbed the Wells Fargo in Randallstown, Maryland, on April 7 was wearing a mask, but he fit the description of the robber in seven other robberies.
- Wells Fargo—8522 Liberty Road, Randallstown, Maryland, on April 7
- Bay Bank—2637 Annapolis Road, Hanover, Maryland, on April 4
- Wells Fargo—8210 Gateway Overlook Drive, Elkridge, Maryland, on April 4

- Wells Fargo—860 North Rolling Road in Catonsville, Maryland, on March 24
- Wells Fargo—6309 York Road, in Baltimore, Maryland, on March 25
Witnesses have all described the robber as a black man, about 20 to 30-years-old, 5’6” to 5’7” tall, with a small build and medium complexion. He presents notes to the tellers and demands money, stating he has a weapon. Witnesses say the robber wore a mask in the most recent incident.
