Montgomery County police have arrested a suspect in the Tuesday robbery of a Rockville bank.

Police said a mole on the cheek of the suspect, 28-year-old David Hernandez, helped in confirming his alleged role in the robbery, which was caught on surveillance camera.

Hernandez, of no fixed address, is accused of posing as a customer at a Chevy Chase Bank on Veirs Mill Road, and then handing to a note to a teller demanding cash.

He is being held at the Montgomery County Detention Center on a $45,000 bond.

Security cameras are EVERYWHERE now, esp. in banks and retail stores. The photos get better and better all the time. How do these thugs think they are NOT going to get caught? If they need money, they probably have friends who need it, too, and those friends will be happy to turn them in for a reward.
