Robbery of PNC Bank Branch in Ambler

FBI Philadelphia March 30, 2013
  • Public Affairs Specialist Carrie Adamowski (215) 418-4135

The FBI and the Upper Dublin Township Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance to identify and locate the subject responsible for the armed robbery of the PNC Bank’s East Ambler branch located at ‪1015 South Bethlehem Pike in Ambler this morning.

At approximately 8:30 a.m., right after the bank opened for business, the subject entered the branch armed with a small black semi-automatic pistol and wearing a white cloth bag or pillowcase, with eye holes cut out, over his head. The subject was carrying a black Nike drawstring bag with him. The subject ordered everyone inside the bank down to the floor, and after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash from the teller area, which he put into the Nike bag, he fled the area of the bank on foot. He was last seen on foot heading north bound on Bethlehem Pike. It is possible that the subject fled into an alley near the bank and then left the area in a vehicle.

The subject, who was completely covered, is described as a white male about 5’10” to 6’0” tall, heavy build, about 210 pounds, wearing a brown suit coat and a brown or gray patterned tie, a light blue button-down shirt, dark pants, and light green latex or rubber gloves.

No shots were fired during the robbery, and no one was physically injured.

Anyone with any information about this robbery is asked to call the Upper Dublin Township Police Department at 215-646-2100 or the FBI at 215-418-4000.

Several pictures from the bank’s security cameras are below.
