Montgomery County Police are investigating two bank robberies that occurred Monday afternoon in the Rockville and Gaithersburg areas of the county.
At approximately 4:23pm, police responded to a call indicating that an individual was claiming he had an explosive device at the BB&T branch along Seven Locks Rd (along Fortune Terrace). The suspect left the bank without acquiring any cash.
Roughly 10 minutes later, another bank robbery call was received for a TD Bank branch in the 15800 block of Shady Grove Rd. In this instance, a suspect was able to escape with an unknown amount of cash.
At this time, it is unclear whether the two incidents are related. However, law enforcement are investigating if there is a connection.
