LA PLATA, Md. (Jan. 21, 2009)—A man dressed as a woman last Thursday robbed the BB&T Bank located at 10579 Theodore Green Blvd. in White Plains. Police say the suspect entered the bank at 11:57 a.m. and presented a note to the teller demanding a large amount of currency. The note indicated the suspect was armed with a gun. The teller complied and the suspect fled. He was last seen running to the rear of the bank.

Police described the suspect as a white male in his forties or fifties, approximately 5'10", with a medium build. His teeth were rotten and his face was gaunt. At the time of the robbery, the suspect was wearing a long blonde wig with a red or pink knit hat, glasses and gloves. He entered the bank carrying a tan colored vinyl zip-up style bank pouch, in which he placed an undisclosed amount of stolen currency.
