Police: Stewartstown bank robber threatened to shoot tellers


An armed robber pointed a handgun at tellers and threatened to shoot them during a bank robbery in Stewartstown Thursday morning, police said.

No one was hurt during the 10:45 a.m. holdup at the Wells Fargo Bank at 20 S. Main St., according to Southern Regional Police.

After walking in the bank, the man brandished the black semi-automatic handgun and told tellers he would shoot them if they didn't hand over money, police said.

He left the bank carrying an undisclosed amount of cash in his hand, police said.

The robber fled the area in a silver four-door vehicle with Maryland license plates, according to police. The vehicle has a dent in the rear driver's-side corner, police said.

The robber had a nylon stocking over his face and was wearing a white long-sleeve shirt and a turquoise baseball cap, according to police.

Anyone who witnessed suspicious behavior near the bank, or who recognizes the gunman, is asked to call (717) 840-2971, which is a non-emergency number to the York County 911 Center.
