LEONARDTOWN, Md. (March 24, 2010)—Yet another southern Maryland bank was robbed this morning. Shortly after 8:00 a.m., the Bank of America, located on North Shangri La Drive in Lexington Park, was robbed of an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspects fled the bank in a blue/green Acura. Police quickly located the car which had been abandoned. Police say the suspects were last seen driving a black sedan similar to an Acura.

The suspects are described as two black males, one wearing a green flight suit and the other wearing a light gray hooded sweat shirt and ski mask. A handgun was displayed during the robbery.

The intersection of Maryland Route 235 and Maryland Route 4 was initially closed to all traffic but has since been reopened. Detectives from the St. Mary's County Bureau of Criminal Investigation responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Robert Merritt at 301-475-4200 x 9042 or call Crime Solvers at 301-475-3333. Tipsters can also text their tips in to "TIP239" plus your message to "CRIMES" (274637). Callers and tipsters do not have to leave a name, just the information. If the information leads to the arrest and conviction, the caller/tipster may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
