Montgomery County detectives are seeking help in identifying a suspect in a bank robbery Tuesday evening in Rockville.

A man entered a Chevy Chase Bank located on Veirs Mill Road near Gridley Road about 5:30 p.m. posing as a customer, police said. He handed to a note to a teller demanding cash then fled on foot.

Police described the suspect as a Hispanic man between 5-foot-8 to 6-foot tall, with a muscular build and short black hair. He was wearing a dark polo shirt with horizontal stripes, blue jeans and a dark-blue baseball cap. He was carrying a black backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to call 240-773-5100.

No disrespect but that area is totally flooded with Hispanic families... there are two big bus stops right there as well as a few more around the corner...

These banks make inordinate amounts of money. That is the best camera they can handle? Maybe they want to be robbed. Maybe that way they can charge us more interest and fees. Screw you banks.
