Man robs bank through drive-through

By Martin Weil

A drive-through bank robbery was carried out in Montgomery County on Monday night by a man who showed up at the teller window in a car, police said.

After arriving at the window of a Bank of America branch in the 19700 block of Germantown Road in Germantown in a vehicle that lacked tags, the man "announced a robbery" and got cash, the police said.

They said the man was white, with a heavy build. He wore a red sweater and had his face covered. The vehicle looked like a a light brown four-door Toyota, or other, similar vehicle, according to the description given, police said.

Anyone with information about the robbery or suspect was asked to call the Robbery Section at 240-773-5100.

I'm a little bit confused, mainly because of the WaPo signature lack of detail in this story, but there is something not clicking here. Does the bank have bulletproof glass? Why didn't the teller just duck so that he couldn't be seen and called the police immediately? It just doesn't seem like robbing a bank from a drive through would be that simple. I'm trying to understand but it's not clicking with the description.

This is a joke, right? Sounds like the teller was in on it because I can't imagine the glass not being bullet proof. Did the guy threaten to run down customers in the parking lot if they didn't hand over cash? The teller couldn't alert the guard that most if not all BoA branches have on duty outside? Good grief. I see a new trend in bank robbery here. Somebody needs to invent exploding currency--and not just with dye packs.

wuzup_2010...I'm sure they're thinking, "oh, that poor white man. How sad he has to resort to robbing a bank just to feed his family and send his children to college". They will assume that he's been looking for work for months, and despite his college degree, he's been turned down, forcing him into a life of crime. You know how it goes. He certainly ain't just some low life POS from the back woods, single parent home, with no education, who was just born a bad seed and should be taken out into the fields, shot, and left for dead. NOOOOO, that certainl aint't the case cause he ain't the right color for that to be the case. Not many will willingly admit this, but unfortunately, for the most part, it's true.

That white man is an animal!!!!! Why would anyone feel threatened enough to give-up the cash at a drive-through?

Well, it was pretty cold on Monday.

Just when you think you've seen it all a bank gets "robbed" through the drive thru...
Last time I saw that, the teller was in on it and arrested along with her boyfriend who "robbed" her.
Bank staff are advised to give any potential robber what they ask for to avoid risk of injury to them or other customers.
Maybe he'll go home and post his own photo on Facebook! Nah...chances of that happening twice within 24 hours are pretty slim.
Criminals are criminals...regardless of race. Wonder if its the same guy snatching purses in College Park?

Seriously??!! No, no ... seriously??!!

What did he do ... put his gun in the slide-out tray with a note attached to it??!

Well, this guy was not an animal... he was a complete idiot and the teller even more of an idiot.... it was the drive thru window... you dont give him the cash, you hit the silent alarm and you slowly pretend your giving him money until the cops show. you have other employees lock the doors so he can't come in the bank. Either the teller is a moron or they were in on it.

Lets make the comments the whites make when a minority is the perp. Lets talk about his worthless parents and his lazy community based on his race. Sounds crazy now doesnt it?

Name four areas in PG country that suck? Name the streets, give a landmark. I bet you cant. All you know is PG County is where the blacks mostly live so it must suck. You dont know PG country at all.

ged0386,
I know PG County very well as I worked for a finance company chasing deadbeats all over the metro area for payment(primarily PG but also DC). Also lived in PG for 4+ years while living in that area.
It does suck. But it isn't because of the majority of the people there its because of the criminal element.
Now...I'm not sure what the story is with the caucasian guy robbing the bank. But, in the vast majority of cases involving African American youth are most not from a single parent household(usually headed by mom)?
Its just a simple question that if you answer honestly you'll realize when people say that stuff they're simply playing the odds.

Inside job. Why would the teller give him money? All the teller had to do was move away from the window.

Maybe we will get the complete info once this knuckle head is caught. I guess his next heist will be a fast food restaurant. Gives drive through a hold new meaning.
